Who is Eligible?

SMO has three main requirements in order to become a member. Our three requirements are:

  • Be a single parent. Meaning that any potential member must be seperated/divorced/widowed and cannot depend financially on a partner/significant other.
  • Be a resident of the greater Santa Clarita Valley
  • and have at least one child under the age of 18. Single parents with kids over the age of 18 could still qualify, but kids must be enrolled full-time in college and must present proof of enrollment. 

We will not discriminate based upon disability, religion, race, color, national origin, gender, age, or sexual orientation.

Parenting is too important a responsibility to bear alone, yet all too often single mothers and fathers are forced to do just that. With a mission to “empower single parents and their children by providing hope, support, and resources so that families can become self-sustaining and thrive,” Single Mothers Outreach (SMO) directly helps single parents find jobs, get educated, secure housing, stabilize their children’s emotional states, manage their finances, and help one another.
