So, what do you ladies do, exactly?
Single Mom Strong™ is a community of single mothers in support of one another. It is our mission to empower single mothers and their children through enrichment, encouragement and educational programs.... How do we do that? By creating opportunities for single mothers and children to engage in the SMS community as often as possible. From virtual options, such as Virtual Village or our monthly Empowerment Workshop, (where we provide life skills, resources and other opportunities for betterment to the single moms of our community), to special events in the Sacramento, LA and Las Vegas areas, like our "Mother and Child Event" (where we come together and spend quality time with our children and each other) and a "Mom's Night Out", (a well-deserved break for our single moms), to weekly events in our Empowerment Center, such as Fit Club, support groups, AND MORE, there are MANY ways to get involved.
When the children are not involved in the activity, childcare is provided by our amazing, pre-screened childcare team.
There is no cost to be a part of the SMS community. You must be a single mom, or have raised your (now grown) children as a single mom. That's it! Register for the events that you are interested in... come every week, or every once in a while, in person, or virtually, it is up to you! Membership does have it's benefits, and is only available in person, at any event or in our Empowerment Center. Schedule an orientation or attend a Kick-off event (which occurs every quarter in all three locations), and register each child by completing an emergency information form. Purchasing a membership gives you priority access to Mom's Night Out events, Men's Mentoring Team (for your children) and more. It also eliminates the per event contribution, and you are able to register for each event under the FREE members only ticket type. The only additional requirement of the SMS community is that each mom volunteers at least once per year for 90 minutes either in the childcare or at a a community event in the Single Mom Strong™ booth. Registration (on Eventbrite) is required for every event, and events are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so keep an eye on our facebook page and/ or the Calendar page of our website!
