It may not be a new term, the “New Poor” but it doesn’t matter if it applies to you. The more single moms I talk with the more I admire the tenacity and overcoming spirit they possess as they deal with their changed economic status. The decision to become a parent is never made alone and yet single moms are often left alone to shoulder the responsibilities of parenthood. There are organizations with programs to assist single mothers and they do offer real solutions in some cases. I will attempt to provide information about them and am open to receiving information about any programs, grants, or other services that any of you are aware of.
The WMU (Women’s Missionary Union) has an organization called Christian Women’s Job Corp.
