Jeremiah prepares determined single mothers to excel in the workforce, readies their children to succeed in school, and reduces generational dependence on public assistance.
Five core pillars, supported by personalized coaching, form our holistic, two-generation model.
Support for a Career-Track, College Education
A college degree creates a path out of poverty for low-income single mothers. Jeremiah’s professional coaches help women set educational goals, choose a career-track path, and get into and through their degree program. This individualized support promotes a culture of accountability and success.
Quality Early Childhood Education
On-site or partner early childhood centers provide the high-quality education that lays the crucial foundation for academic achievement, social success, and economic productivity. Jeremiah coaches parents to become partners in their children’s education.
Safe & Affordable Housing
Jeremiah Program offers young mothers and their children safe and affordable housing or, with non-residential programs, ensures that such housing is in place. The stability provided by this housing allows women to grow as parents, succeed as students, and prepare for career-track professions.
Empowerment & Life Skills Training
Empowerment is the catalyst for young women to change the direction of their lives. This required course promotes accountability and a deep understanding of how beliefs impact outcomes. Jeremiah women participate in weekly life skills training in career development, economic independence, physical and emotional health, and positive parenting. Jeremiah coaches participants to integrate skills into everyday actions.
The supportive community begins with the Jeremiah sisterhood; by taking this journey together the women grow in self-confidence and develop cooperative relationships. Coaches work one-to-one offering women support, advice, and accountability in dealing with daily challenges and opportunities. Dedicated volunteers extend women’s access to community resources and networks, resulting in expanded social capital for Jeremiah families.
