SUPPORT

​Your philanthropic investment will make a significant impact in the lives of the single women and single mothers in Eastern Contra Costa County.​ We are working to develop innovative programs to negate the generational cycle of poverty in the lives of single women and single mothers. 

 

We will make every effort possible to transform the lives of the women and children who come to us for support, help, encouragement, and the opportunity to have a better life. 

​​We endeavor to accomplish this by providing the resources and support necessary to achieve self-sustaining lives for women, families and our respective communities at large.​Together we can empower the women who seek our assistance by preparing and guiding them toward overall restoration, reclaimed self-worth and self-esteem and emotional stability; which translates into a life of purpose and fulfillment.​​ 

Our hope is that many of the women will go on to achieve higher education through attaining a college degree and moving toward a professional career; ultimately arriving at their God given purpose and hopefully, positively impacting the lives of the people who will cross their life’s path.​

 

Take action now to make a direct impact in your community by designating your donation to one of our SCEO programs and to support the vision of transforming women, families and our respective communities.​

A gift of any size will help us to build institutions that will support many single women and single mothers and their children.​The following donations are also welcome:​​
