Celebrating single moms this Mother’s Day
Join the 2021 Mother’s Day initiative
Mother’s Day isn’t easy for single moms. On a day that’s meant to shower them, single moms often feel lonely, forgotten, and overwhelmed. This Mother’s Day, support single moms all over Kansas City by giving to The Single MOM KC.
More than 80% of single-parent families are headed by single moms (U.S. Census Bureau, 2020), and the effects of fatherlessness on these children is astounding. Kansas City is not exempt from this alarming statistic. In fact, single-mother families make up 75% of the single-parent families in Kansas City.
The Single MOM KC strives to transform negative statistics that often surround fatherless children and helps single-mother families experience restoration.
Give a special one-time or recurring gift to help The Single MOM KC continue to provide the tools and resources to support single mothers this Mother’s Day.
“I never knew the importance of life-giving community until I became involved with The Single MOM KC. Through Pursuit, I learned about forgiveness, self-care, boundaries, and leading our children through this tough journey. Various workshops taught me about healthy eating, grieving productively, and financial management; all which included activities and tools to use in parenting and leading my son.
My journey of healing continues, but now I have confidence, hope, and the love that this community provides for my son and me.”
This Mother’s Day, The Single MOM KC is completing the phrase The Mother Who… and connecting traits of single moms with those of mothers of the Bible. Each week via email, we are highlighting a single mom’s story, as well as providing encouragement to our single moms by featuring a Biblical mother.
As a part of this initiative, single moms are running their own Facebook fundraisers for The Single MOM KC. Your support this Mother’s Day allows us to continue serving single moms through:
- Quarterly events that embrace, nourish, and provide hope
- Practical and spiritual mentoring + leadership development
- A beautiful clothing boutique, Clothed with Dignity, where moms can “shop for free”
- Workshops + classes that equip and educate moms in finances, mental health, etc.
- And so much more

Who we are
The Single MOM KC was founded to help provide hope, courage, and community to the 61,600+ single mother families in the KC metro area. Bearing the full responsibility of parenthood and provision for a family is often exhausting and isolating. We invite single moms to join us in community by equipping their family and providing resources to be restored into a better story. TSMKC is led by single moms who took ownership of their stories, created the community they needed, and now are seeing stories of triumph take place for other mothers in the Kansas City area.
