Networking & Fundraising

Our mission is reducing poverty among single parents between the ages of 18-40 by providing support via career development and related resources.

We accomplish our goal via fundraisers for the following:


Education | Development | Employment.

As a 501c3 we are not a for profit, revenue generating business.


To provide support the single parent community, we need your help.

Mommy need a Minute

Mommy need a Minute is an annual networking event hosted locally in the Chicagoland area where mother's looking to connect with like minds gather in the name of social responsibility and a good time.

Proceeds from this in person event help to fund the $1000 "return to college/trade school" grant provided during the Mother's Day isn't just in May event.

The event's back LIVE but with a twist....
