Breaking the cycle of poverty, two generations at a time.

The statistics are dire: 42% of children born into poverty are still poor a generation later. But for some single moms, their child becomes their motivation to break the cycle of poverty and build a better life for themselves and their children.

Almost Home provides resources and support for these motivated young moms, but it’s their drive, grit, and determination that will transform their futures.

“One night, I was playing with three toddlers who didn’t get along with each other. I was teaching them to hug each other rather than hit, and hugged one of them as an example. When I stood up, the three toddlers surrounded me. They hugged my legs and looked up at me, smiling. My heart melted and I was suddenly really happy. I still think about that memory and smile.”
