Jeremiah Program is a vibrant and proven nonprofit organization that offers one of the country’s most successful two-generation anti-poverty solutions for families headed by single mothers. Our mission is to transform families from poverty to prosperity. Jeremiah Program partners with diverse single mothers living below the poverty line and their young children to advance social and economic mobility for both generations. Jeremiah’s proven, holistic approach begins with establishing a supportive community for determined single mothers to pursue a career-track, college education. With this support — and a combination of quality early childhood education, a safe and affordable place to live, and empowerment and life skills training — families find stability and a pathway out of poverty.
