Invest in families

Single mothers need you

In  Wisconsin, 43 percent of single mothers with minor children live in poverty; in Milwaukee, County, that number exceeds 68 percent (U.S. Census Bureau data). Like all parents, single mothers want to give their children every advantage. But lack of education, resources, and community limit their job prospects, opportunities, and the time they can spend with their children. Just meeting everyday needs can leave them feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, and alone.

give hope

With your help, we can give hope to single mothers. Your donation to HOPE Network helps connect single mothers with one another and with resources to improve their families’ lives. With your help, we are providing support to single mothers throughout their parenting journey.

Start with safe sleep

Our crib program provides portables cribs, education, and infant supplies to families in need.

Give Ongoing Support

The Sharing HOPE quarterly newsletter, HOPE Network web site Resource listings, opportunities for tickets to free/ low-cost events, and member Facebook page give single mothers opportunity to connect with community and each other.

Build Strong futures

We foster self-reliance with scholarships that can be used for tuition or for childcare while the mother earns her degree.
