Overcoming Generational Poverty through Education

Overcoming Generational Poverty through Education

Why education?

There are a lot of jobs out there – but a lot of starting salaries won’t cover the costs of transportation and childcare in addition to what you need to support your family. By helping you complete high school, college, trade school, or a certificate program, we can help you get a better-paying job so you can provide a better life for your kids. 

$ 0 /hr
It takes a starting salary of at least $21 an hour for a single parent to support one child.
1 %
Approximately 65% of jobs in the US require postsecondary education.

The largest factor in whether a child will stay in school is if their mother had an education.

How we help

Our main goal is to remove barriers so you can pursue your education and future career. Our trained family advocates will help you identify your goals, create a plan, and connect you to resources like childcare, textbook assistance, home needs, and more.

We also provide fun, accessible programs for the whole family. These include study skills, exercise and nutrition programs, cooking classes, budgeting workshops, and more. We want to make sure your whole family is thriving!

Is this for me?

Yes! No matter where you are in your journey, we are here to make it happen. Contact us to hear more about how we can help, especially if you…

  • Are unmarried
  • Have legal custody of a child
  • Are working to regain custody of a child


If this doesn’t apply to you, contact us anyway – we can still connect you with valuable resources.

Let's get started!

Reach out to staff@myfamilyalliance.org with the best way to get in touch with you, and we’ll take it from there! We’ll ask some questions to figure out where you are now and where you want to be, and we’ll get started on finding ways to get you there.
