We Wish to Thank
SMO wants to acknowledge and thank our new donor. Although he is not from Santa Clarita he decided to support SMO. He made a personal commitment: He says... "If I do well... I will do good." He values SMO's work and decided to make a commitment with the organization to support single moms and children.
Sanford D. Sigal. President and CEO NewMark Merrill
NewMark Merrill often adopts local charities, providing them with space to raise funds and awareness, and providing direct support through fundraisers and other events.

Mr. Sigal is also active in community organizations serving on the Board of the Camp Bob Waldorf Foundation, a camp for underserved children which Mr. Sigal attended when he was a child. He is currently serving as Vice Chairman of the Board and dinner chair since 2004 and was the recipient of the William Shatner Humanitarian Award in 2007 for his work for the Foundation and the Camp. He serves on the Board of Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters (JBBBS) serving on their executive committee. Mr. Sigal serves as a mentor for young adults interested in real estate through the Community Leadership Institute (CLI) and mentors an Olympic Athlete on transitioning from sports to private industry. Currently, Mr. Sigal is Co-Chair of the Real Estate Principals Organization (RPO), a group of senior Jewish Real Estate Principals and Owners which provides financial and logistical support to a variety of organizations needing assistance. In 2019, Mr. Sigal was the honoree at the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles Real Estate and Construction Dinner and currently serves on their Board.

We also wish to thank D'Wilfri Dance Art and Entertainment for all their investment in our children.

The impact of The Dance Therapy Class on SMO children has exceeded anything we expected from any program.  The class has helped kids to heal. It has helped to ease the stress and anxiety of the past year. It has allowed children to build confidence and has provided an outlet for them to express and communicate their feelings.

We Wish to Thank

“To see my daughter's transformation especially after such a hard year has been one of the most beautiful gifts I have received from Single Mothers Outreach.” —SMO MOM

Providing Hope, Support, and Resources

December was a tough month for SMO. 

Serious family illnesses COVID outbreaks at the SMO office and Closet on Main costing us needed holiday proceeds.

Regardless of the many challenges of 2020 over 350 people benefited from our Holiday Programs including Adopt A Family. SMO members received gift cards Christmas trees toys food clothing gift boxes and goodie bags. AAF was a fantastic drive-through event made possible because of our partnership with CrossPoint Church.
