Empowering Hearts Information
SMO connects single parents to vital community resources. SMO helps to provide emergency stabilization for families who are in real danger
of losing everything.
SMO provides training programs to help facilitate low-income parents getting jobs, stopping a financial free-fall, and attaining the life skills necessary to raise their families alone.
SMO provides a variety of rewards to families who are on a path to independence. SMO also gives incentives to parents who need encouragement to move forward.
Parenting is too important a responsibility to bear alone, yet all too often single mothers are forced to do just that. Because we believe that effective parenting leads to successful, well-adjusted children, Single Mothers Outreach scaffolds families facing sudden housing instability, income loss, emotional trauma, and social deterioration as the result of divorce, abandonment, or widowhood.
With a mission to “empower single parents and their children by providing hope, support, and resources so 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.
Empowering Hearts is an annual event that helps raise funds for programs and services offered at Single Mothers Outreach to empower Santa Clarita’s impoverished single-parent families.
Proceeds from sponsorships ticket sales silent auction and retail sales from Closet on Main are all essential to supporting our programs that enable single parents to care for their families effectively. Empowering HeArts bridges the worlds of social action and artistic expression by pairing inspirational women and artists of Santa Clarita to create art forms that depict the moving stories of amazing women.
