There are more than 15,000 single mother families in Austin, with 56,000 children under the age of 18 living in poverty. They face significant barriers to breaking the cycle of poverty for their family due to the lack of higher education for the mothers, safe affordable housing for the family and quality early childhood education for these vulnerable children.

powerful foundation for single women and their families to break the
generational cycle of poverty.
