Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Support Group Meetings

Our moms meet twice a month for support, encouragement and fellowship. It is such an important aspect of being a single mom to know you are not alone.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Each month our committee will assemble birthday bags filled with the essentials needed to give kids with a birthday in that month a fun celebration: hats, streamers, plates, tablecloth, gift card for a cake and a birthday gift from our inventory of new toys.

Population(s) Served

The Bare Necessities program provides families with a supply of most-needed household items that are used in the home daily.

Population(s) Served

We host quarterly kid friendly events at fun venues around SWFL. This gives the kids a chance to meet other kids that go through the same challenge that comes with being raised by a single mom.

Population(s) Served

Families are matched with community members and organizations that wish to adopt the single mom and her children for Christmas.

Population(s) Served

This program helps with those unforeseen emergencies that make it near impossible to pay bills during a time of crisis. This is for temporary assistance when it is truly needed and when funds are available.

Population(s) Served

We offer practical skills training in areas such as budgeting, resume writing, interview skills and more.

Population(s) Served

Between school clothes and supplies the costs add up. In an effort to give our moms a little breathing room and make sure every student is prepared the first day back to school.

Population(s) Served

Referral network to help single mother families find the resources they need in their community.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

A Mom's Helping Hand of SWFL needs to increase its programs and expand the organization so that we can meet more needs locally. It is important that we recruit more board members, donors, volunteers, partners, and fine tune our operations.

We are focusing on strengthening family relationships, developing a volunteer culture, and increasing our partner and donor bases. We are also actively recruiting a grant writer.

We have the capability to deliver our programs with volunteers and donors, however we really need to add more volunteers and develop a database for the management of the organization because it is growing so much. We really need to add storage and secure a larger office.

We are growing our membership of moms and children that we serve.
We have obtained office space to hold our support group meetings and some small classes.
We need to recruit a Marketing professional to increase our presence .
We need a grant writer to help secure grants.
We need to purchased liability insurance for our events.
