Why it matters
Over 37.5% of single parent families in Utah live in poverty. That number goes up to 46.9% if those single parent families have children younger than five years old. Many of these women work 40-60 hours a week in minimum wage jobs that offer little opportunity for advancement and provide no financial security for their families. These mothers feel trapped and without hope. Sadly, this begins a multi-generational cycle of poverty for many of these families. Every community feels the impact of families living in poverty.
Thanks to your help the Women to Women Foundation is able to dramatically and permanently improve the financial security of many single moms and their children. Because of you, we have over 30 moms on scholarship at 7 different institutions.
