Although a lot of single mothers take advantage of government benefits such as SNAP, commonly referred to as food stamps, increased for custodial mothers from about one-quarter (23.5 percent) in 2007 to over one third (36.6 percent) in 2015 made it more difficult to have access to these benefits quicker.
The proportion of custodial parents who were supposed to receive support, but received none, increased from 24.2 percent in 1993 to 30.7 percent in 2015. The remaining 59% still struggle to affordable health care for their children.
