Single Mom Ministry

Since 1981, Sheridan House has partnered with local churches to serve single moms in need. We believe that single moms are this generation’s “widows and orphans” (James 1:27). Whether the need is spiritual, emotional, physical, or financial, we strive to come alongside each single mom and walk with her in this journey.

Hardworking women in the Single Mom Program need support both physically and spiritually (James 2:14-7). Materially, we provide groceries, clothing, and other basic needs. For personal growth, moms attend intensive group training classes in areas such as finances, parenting, résumé preparation and interviewing skills, as well as meal planning on a budget and more.

Our goal through this training is two fold: equip these moms with the knowledge and skills necessary for them to gain economic independence and to thrive in their home, work, and community. As moms attend classes, they are invited to special events too! Find out how you can help moms during the more difficult times of the year through the Back-to-School, Thanksgiving Blessing, and Christmas Toy Shoppe events!

Rather than a handout, offer a hand up.

If you are a single mom in need of assistance, please contact us for more information and enrollment: 954-583-1552 or email Amy, the Single Mom Coordinator, at aadler@sheridanhouse.org

Single Mom Transitional Housing Updates

Since 2018, seven single moms and their kids have moved into our transitional housing. We’re thrilled to share that the first two moms to move in have now moved out, one with her Master’s degree, the other as a homeowner, and both with great, reliable jobs! The five single moms remaining strive to take charge of their finances and gain their independence! We’re also excited to share that two more homes are currently under construction!
