In our area, there are people who are at or below the poverty line. That might sound surprising, but we know that there are pockets in your community where the percentages of single parents is around 50%. For single parents in that situation, a car repair or a trip to the doctor can mean the difference between being able to pay rent or putting food on the table for their children. Of particular concern for single parents is the need for transportation and affordable childcare.
We want to come alongside single parents to prevent them from falling into the cycles that keep them trapped in poverty, with a focus on developing initiatives that will allow single parents to have access to affordable childcare and transportation.
