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.

Our comprehensive and relevant programs are designed to address the complex needs of young moms in poverty, have measurable results and meet young moms today where they are in their lives.

One day I walked downstairs to the playroom and one of the little kids ran up to me with the biggest smile on his face and gave me the most awesome welcome hug. It made me smile and helped me realize the impact that I have on their lives every time I show up to volunteer.
