Families headed by single mothers are among the poorest households, more than a third lived in poverty, and as such, are extremely vulnerable to homelessness. Single mothers often spend over half of their income on housing expenses and a third on child care, leaving them with less money for educational expenses. Without financial aid, single mother students have little or no means to contribute financially to their educational expenses.
Here at Bright Mothers we help empower single mother students through higher education to help them create a brighter future for themselves and their children.
How We Help
Our Bright Mothers community create fundraising events to support our scholarship programs for low income single mother students.
