JP By the Numbers
Targeting Generational Poverty
Generational poverty is defined as at least two generations of a family being born into poverty. These conditions severely limit a family’s access to social capital and opportunities to create sustained change that leads to a more prosperous and independent life.
Jeremiah Program believes that the pervasive and systemic impacts of poverty can be disrupted. We’re committed to dismantling systemic barriers to education, housing and childcare for single mothers and their children, helping to disrupt the cycle of generational poverty. In collaboration with our families and communities, we also challenge social stigmas about single motherhood and work to interrupt the structural and systematic inequities that many families in poverty experience.
At JP, we are committed to transparency and improvement from the inside out. Our Family Experience Survey offers proof points we rely on to guide our program design, public policy goals and storytelling approach. This data from this survey reflects several key shifts: One, our expansion of the leadership circle; two, our framing of poverty as a social justice issue; and three, our commitment to shifting the narrative around single motherhood. The lines of communication between moms, alumni and staff are critical to our data-driven approach.

“There’s a real cost to poverty for moms—and single moms in particular. There are constant tradeoffs being made between whether I’m going to prioritize myself or my family. And what JP does so beautifully is create an equation that allows both to be true. We’re going to prioritize each other and move along this journey to ensure that we disrupt generational poverty, not only for ourselves but also for our children.”Chastity Lord, CEO & President
