CHANGE YOUR FUTURE!
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, Workforce Mom Program
Currently we have two programs in the Palm Beach Gardens area. The Young Moms program serves young single moms that are 29 years old and under and Workforce Moms that are between 30 and 40 years old with children under 18 years of age.
HFM's three pillars represent expectations that are set in place for success and for 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’s 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 are:
OUR THREE C'S
A high level of commitment is required for a single mom to be accepted into and remain in the program. Moms commit to the HFM process by furthering their education, becoming Financially Literate, attending bi-weekly Skill Development classes year round, and achieving Mental Wellness.
Building relationships, learning to effectively communicate and belonging to community are life-skills taught within our program. Participants must connect and have good communication with their Program Coordinators, Christian Mentors, Financial Coaches, Mental Health Counselors, other volunteers and the HFM Moms.
With such a high level of commitment we expect to see a continuous positive change while the moms are enrolled in the program. Moms must set and achieve personal, educational, career, financial, physical and spiritual goals. HFM's expectations to see a mom's personal growth and development is for their greater future!
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.
