Disrupting the Cycle of Poverty, Two Generations at a Time
Jeremiah Program offers one of the nation’s most successful strategies for transforming families from poverty to prosperity two generations at a time. No mother should have to make the untenable choice between investing in herself and her children. Families can dream what is possible when they are able to bring all of their identities to bear in pursuit of their goals.
Jeremiah’s proven, holistic approach begins with establishing a supportive community for single mothers to pursue a career-track, college education. Through 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 path out of poverty.
