INVEST IN MOTHERS
When a single mother completes her education and receives her degree, she is more likely to independently support her family’s needs and provide a stable home life to her children. The benefits of her education and increased earning power, however, extend far beyond individual households. The sacrifices of single mother students benefit local schools, communities, and save the nation billions of dollars in public assistance spending.
