Why single mothers

The social stigma surrounding single motherhood has dissipated. The challenges have not.

  

A working mother in itself is a daunting task now imagine doing by yourself. We marvel at a single mothers strength for balancing lifes daily struggles while still maintaining the expected role of being a MOTHER.

A Real Football Mom's Story

In this episode of BECOME we meet Paula. A single mom with 4 kids, Paula manages to hold down multiple jobs and be there for her kids every step of the way. Whether it's her support in sports or in school work, she knows putting in time with her kids is her number one priority and she wouldn't have it any other way.

Our Vision

She Cares Foundation features thought-provoking workshops, series of community forums addressing a variety of diverse topics (legal resources, financial literacy, mental health support, health & nutrition & educational advocacy). She Cares Foundation will feature national experts that focus specifically on parenting independent mothers; mental health, education support, legal support and counsel, emotional support, and financial literacy. Our targeted goal is to build a learning network of 1,000 Independent moms within the initial two cities Chicago and Los Angeles. The cities were selected based on quality of life issues that impact independent mothers.
She Cares Foundation is designed to provide a greater advocacy and support for single mothers. The Foundation seeks to address several alarming statistics that impact children from a single parent home as a whole. She Cares seek to increase awareness around the need to connect single mothers to greater access to services (mental health, financial literacy, strategies for parenting a child and strategies to support college tuition etc...). Although many of these women receive some support from the biological father and extended family members, an alarming number of these mothers do not receive any financial and or emotional support in raising their sons or daughters. While many of the statistics are daunting many mothers are successfully raising their sons in some of the toughest cities in America. According to Custodial Mothers and Fathers and Their Child Support: 2005, released by the U.S. Census Bureau in August, 2007, there are approximately 13.6 million single parents in the United States today, and those parents are responsible for raising 21.2 million children (approximately 26% of children under 21 in the U.S. today).
