Sister Circle for Single Mothers
Many immigrant single mothers lack local, familial support and an understanding of the dominant bureaucracy. Additional gender inequalities and childcare needs force single mothers to take positions that make it harder to support their families. Their unique needs and challenges require unique support.Sister Circle was established to meet their needs. They receive counseling, scholarships, retraining and seed loans geared to careers and businesses that can accommodate their newfound financial, emotional, and parenting burdens and enable their children’s successes. The Sister Circle also acts as a participant peer support group.
