Providing Hope, Support, and Resources

This Year’s Theme: Survivor

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.

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.

Social Distancing

Social distancing doesn’t mean a lack of connection. 

As the situation surrounding COVID 19 continues to evolve, we’ll stay in touch to keep connected. In times of uncertainty, we all need to keep working together and live in constant assessment and adjustments.

We want to thank you for walking along with us as we try to keep the organization going, deliver services, and continue supporting our families. It is time to keep thinking of others and show our real value, and it only comes when we fully and authentically show up to have an impact on others.  Read more →

2019 Has Been a Wonderful Year For SMO!

Single Mothers Outreach partnered with…

Princess Cruises, Hardcore Fitness and the Santa Clarita community for the 2018 holiday season and we were able to provide 450 single mothers and their children with holiday gifts. The event was a huge success, and it was a great ending to 2018. 2019 has been an incredible year for SMO! We have settled nicely into our new office on Apple St. and the single mothers that we serve have continued to receive the much-needed services. SMO is partners with the social work department at California State University Northridge for many years now and, also, we are partnered with the social work department at Brandman University. Through our partnerships with the colleges, SMO can now provide individual therapy year-round to both single mothers and their children.
