Our Impact

Jeremiah Program has high expectations for determined young women to further their education and to prepare their children for school success.

Jeremiah Program

The program provides the opportunities and tools; the young mothers, most of whom come from challenging backgrounds and life situations, have to do the work.

This combination of high expectations and holistic support works. Several recent studies have proven a significant return on investment in the families Jeremiah Program serves, including a recent analysis by Wilder Research.

Every $1 invested in a Jeremiah family can return up to $4 to society through first-generation benefits of decreased dependence upon public assistance and increased taxable earnings, plus second-generation benefits of increased lifetime earnings/taxes paid, and savings from costs associated with crime and special education.
