What we're about

You don’t have to be a single mom to appreciate the sacrifices they make every day. Bearing the full responsibility of parenthood and provision for a family is often exhausting and isolating. The Single Mom KC (TSMKC) exists to provide hope, courage, and community for these moms and their families.

In the Kansas City area, there are an estimated 61,000 single mothers raising 136,000 children. In the Kansas City Area 51% of families are Single Mother Families. In comparison, the state and national average are 35%. Studies show that children who grow up without a father in the home are four times more likely to grow up in poverty, 9 times as likely as likely to drop out of school and are at an immensely higher risk for future incarceration and teen pregnancy. Single moms face huge challenges, but we believe in their resilience and ability to lead. We believe that their children do not have to join those statistics. With your partnership, TSMKC is committed to rewriting the narrative and breaking damaging cycles through the power of community.

If your heart is drawn to these families, but you haven’t been sure how to meet the need, we invite you to join us. TSMKC is led by single moms who took ownership of their story, created the community they needed, and now are seeing stories of triumph take place for other mothers in the Kansas City area. You can make a huge impact in the lives of these families, helping them rewrite the script for this moment and for generations to come.

The Single Mom KC seeks to serve holistically, empowering and encouraging single moms in every area of their lives. We do this by providing:

● Connection and community with other moms

● Quarterly events that embrace, nourish, and provide hope

● Practical and spiritual mentoring

● Leadership development

● Small group opportunities to educate

● Monthly workshops to equip and empower

● Financial counseling, resources, and household goods

● A beautiful clothing boutique where moms can “shop” for free

● An outlook that centers on the abundant grace of Jesus Christ
