Single Mom Strong's mission is to empower single mothers and their children through enrichment, encouragement and educational programs. It takes a village to raise a child, and for single mothers, we are that village.
As a career woman and parent, Tara worked hard to give her daughter all of the opportunities every child deserves, along with the support of a caring, loving extended family “community”. It was through this experience that the concept of Single Mom Strong™ was born.

EmpowerME Pre-school & Childcare programs make quality early childhood education accessible to all young children by making preschool affordable, even on a single income budget. The same level of quality and affordability is extended to serve school-age children on all days schools are closed. The values-based curriculum, home-like environment and culturally responsive programming at EmpowerME encourage self-expression and emphasize social-emotional development.
Designed to be a safe, fun, reliable resource for working families, we are currently offering an Infant/ Toddler, Preschool, Pre-K/Kinder Program and School-age Non-School Day Care at our Citrus Heights (Antelope/I-80) location and Preschool/Pre-K at our Sacramento (Arden/I-80) location.
Single Mom Strong’s Career Exploration Workshop Series gives women access to industries with low educational requirements and high income potential.
Are you returning to the workforce? Are you currently working, but not earning what you’re worth? Are you feeling trapped in a career or industry that you don't love? This is NOT your typical career fair! You'll explore your options in the safe, friendly SMS environment you know and love. Lunch is included and, as with all of our programs, on-site childcare is always available. Plus, we will talk with WOMEN in the industry, asking REAL questions about what it is like to work in their field, how they balance work and family, their experience with career advancement in the industry, etc.
WHAT MOMS ARE SAYING
ABOUT SMS: "Being a single parent is a big job. You are a provider, a nurturer, and your child’s main support system. You don’t get the luxury of a partner to help with the kids or take care of your children so you can have some “me time”.
Single Mom Strong, Inc’s founder, Tara Taylor, understood the struggle and created a nonprofit to support women going through single parenthood. As Tara always says “it takes a village”! This organization has been a blessing to my family. I am proud to be involved with a nonprofit that empowers and encourages women. Single mom life is so much easier with good friends and a great support system..." -RB
ABOUT EMPOWERME: "Upon my very first contact with EmpowerME, I knew this experience would be different. I toured the center with Ms. Kim who ended up being my son’s primary teacher. The entire building is filled with love. It’s palpable; you can genuinely tell the teachers love what they do. My son was welcomed immediately and aside from those first day jitters he loves his school. He comes home daily telling me about all the fun he had, the friends he played with and what he has learned. Most important to me, he tells me Ms. Kim is his best friend. I’m truly grateful for Single Mom Strong EmpowerME preschool. My son has been developing so wonderfully and I’m so happy to see his growth everyday." -MS
