What is Empowering Hearts?

Each year, the Single Mothers Outreach Board of Directors and Empowering Hearts Events Planning Committee has the pleasure of selecting six exemplar women to honor whose life stories embodies the current  year’s Empowering Hearts theme. These women are chosen from a pool of nominations that friends, family, and colleagues submit.

Empowering Hearts is an annual celebration of women who have changed lives and shaped their communities. It bridges the worlds of social action and artistic expression in an annual arts competition.

Honorees are nominated by the community and selected by the Single Mothers Outreach (SMO) Board of Directors and Event Planning Committee.

It is SMOs hope that through sharing these powerful stories in word and art, these extraordinary women will impact and inspire others to rise above their own circumstances.

Empowering Hearts is SMO’s signature fundraising event. All proceeds from  the event are used to support programs that empower single parents to effectively care for their families.
