Ministry Leader Help 2018-05-01T13:41:00+00:00

We are committed to helping churches and communities with best practices to reach, serve, and impact single moms in productive ways!

With over a decade of experience, our goal is to equip churches & communities with the knowledge and resources they need to reach single mothers in effective and influential ways. We provide programs, events, and services to train, educate, and equip leaders to reach single mothers.  Whether you are new to single mom’s ministry or have been serving single parents for years through nonprofit, church, or community work, our industry-leading programs, curriculum, workshops, & events can help you.

We have worked to provide a balance of free and low-cost options for those who work with single mothers to ensure real impact is made in the lives of these precious families. Check out some free PDF’s below to get you started, as well as details on other services we provide:
