Often times, single mothers have nowhere to turn at all when they
become pregnant with their child. The sad fact is that a lot of these
honorable women have no supportive family to turn to, and in some cases no family at all.
How can it be that our government has not done more to educate our single mothers on pregnancy issues, taking care of their children, showing them how to provide, and providing them with massive resources to enable them to succeed?
I’ve always wished that we had some type of “life” education program for single others, and this has now become reality by providing housing for single mothers. The Supportive Housing For Young Mothers (SHYM) does just that. It’s a non-profit organization that helps single, young mothers develop the life skills that they so desperately need in order to build a strong, secure loving family in a safe and encouraging environment.
This environment provides them an affordable home, which is secure and free from violence. The young mothers who become part of this
program all live on welfare or some type of social assistance.
The welfare they receive pays for their housing expenses at the
facility and also the childcare expenses.
If he had more non -profit organizations that helped single mothers
as well as SHYM, then possibly the world would be a better place.
One of the great things about this place, is they teach these
young women the life skills they desperately need. Skills such
as how to bond with their babies, balance their checkbooks, and
become socially responsible and also how to rise above their situation
and deal with those who may disapprove of their lifestyle or situation.

What more do you think should be done to help single mothers in need? Are there any places in the U.S that provide this type of assistance for single mothers? We want to know.
We want to hear from you!
