Stability & Support for Single Moms

Animas River near Durango, Colorado

I understand that college students are seven times less likely to graduate if they don’t have a support system. SMORE for Women aims to offer the support that single mothers need to finish a college degree.

Just as the roots of this tree are holding it up, keeping it from falling. They have a adapted and miraculously created support to keep the tree upright.

Over the last several years I’ve worked with single moms attending college and who were often without any family support. Some were discouraged from going to college at all.

Your donations have made it possible for single mothers to not only have financial support, but also be encouraged by the ongoing support of others. Just knowing others care enough to offer support inspires them and encourages them to succeed.

Thanks to all who have contributed!


I hold a degree from Lamar University in Speech and a Master’s from the University of Texas. I was an educator in regular and special education for twenty years, finishing my professional career as a Braille teacher. I am a Certified Professional Coach with Fowler International Academy. I married Sam after raising three children as a single mother. In 2007 I founded SMORE for Women. SMORE is a 501 (c)3 nonprofit whose goal is Single Moms, Overjoyed, Rejuvenated, & Empowered. My stories have been published in several books and magazines. My book, Living Learning Loving, Insights and Encouragement on the Path of Motherhood is available for purchase on Amazon.
