"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..."

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.
