Mission Statement

eremiah Program offers one of the nation’s most successful strategies for transforming families from poverty to prosperity two generations at a time. Jeremiah prepares determined single mothers to excel in the workforce, readies their children to succeed in school, and reduces generational dependence on public assistance. Jeremiah’s proven, holistic approach begins with establishing a supportive community for determined 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.

Description

Jeremiah Program has high expectations for determined young women to further their education and to prepare their children for school success. The program provides the opportunities and tools; the young mothers, most of whom come from challenging backgrounds and life situations, have to do the work.

This combination of high expectations and holistic support works. Several recent studies have proven a significant return on investment in the families Jeremiah Program serves, including a recent analysis by Wilder Research.
