First Woman & Child is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization providing daily necessities such food and clothes, growth-based training and workshops, and support for low-income single mothers in the Bloomington-Normal and surrounding areas.
1 in 4 children in the U.S are growing up in a single parent home. These single mothers are likely to live in poverty, as they face various life/work balance issues. Single mothers have unique needs and issues constantly affecting their inability to overcome their current situation. The financial and emotional impact on these single parent households actually creates an ongoing cycle that also leads an even younger population of single parents who are just children themselves.
