FJ: What lead you to start working with SMO?
SMO: Single Mothers Outreach is a grassroots organization originally founded in 1995 by divorcee Debbie Quick who sought peer support from other single mothers. In 1998, the agency acquired its 501(c) (3) nonprofit status, and it opened its storefront office in Canyon Country in 2002.
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 →
