The encouragement of HFM has inspired me to have short and long-term goals of additional education. Now I am going to go back to school for Digital Marketing short term and long term to finish my Bachelors in Marketing. This has been something I have been putting off for 10 years. I'm both nervous and excited!
Becca, Changing Lives Program
OUR MOM'S TEAM
Currently, our programs are located in Florida in the Palm Beach County area. Both, the Giving Hope and Changing Lives programs serve single moms under 40 years of age.
It truly takes the involvement of the community to impact the lives of the moms and children we are so privileged to serve every day! Many leaders in our area and nationwide volunteer to serve the moms or their children depending on their area of expertise or calling. The body-of-Christ comes along-side of the moms to speak life over them and demonstrate the love of Christ throughout their journey. The success and personal growth for each of the moms is dependent on the accountability, grace and the resources HFM provides to equip and empower the moms and their child/ren, so they can go from surviving to thriving!
The team is not limited to other leaders such as tutors for both mom or child, speech therapists, doctors, attorneys, learning specialists and more.
HFM's three pillars represent expectations that are set in place for success and a mom's greater future. HFM is a long-term commitment, as long as the mom is willing to further her education, as it will change her future outcome. These pillars will propel her to financial independence with no government-provided assistance, allowing her to become self-sufficient and to better provide for her children.
OUR THREE C'S
Moms commit to the HFM process by furthering their education in order to bridge their income gap to self-sustainability. Moms also agree to disclose all financial statements and work alongside of a financial coach to gain financial freedom. Moms continue to gain valuable skills on parenting, finances and twice a month for the skill development classes and willing to meet with a counselor to achieve mental wellness.
Moms connect with their assigned Program Coordinators, christian mentors/life coaches, financial coaches, mental health counselors, other volunteers and resources.
Moms are part of a community that fully embraces them and demonstrates the love of Christ throughout their HFM journey.
Moms are committed to change their lives by breaking bad habits and learning new behaviors that will help them succeed.
Moms must set and achieve personal, educational, professional, financial, physical and spiritual goals. performance evaluations assess a mom's personal growth and development to remain in the program.
The funds raised helps single moms supplement the high cost of Housing, Childcare, Education, Transportation, Mental Health Counseling, other basic needs (like diapers and wipes), and unexpected emergencies.
Single moms are much more likely to be poor than married couples. Families headed by single moms are amongst the poorest households, more than a third lived in poverty, therefore making them extremely vulnerable to homelessness.
Without the program's financial support, the moms and their children can face the possibility of entering and staying into the downward cycle of poverty and government dependence. We want to help break that cycle by empowering and equipping them, by providing the moms with scholarship funds for their Education, supplementing the cost of housing, helping them cover childcare costs, having reliable transportation and achieving Mental Wellness through our counseling partners.
