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.
