Too often man-woman relationship irreparably breaks down. Too often the woman gets stuck with a kid that takes two to make and needs two to raise. The whole spectrum of the society is affected. The Haves and the Have-nots. The Haves can manage to get by. The Have-nots cannot even scrape by. Poorly paid, they live from check to check. Needs pile up unmet. The kid suffers. Another life wreck and jail candidate is in the making. The single working mother is unfortunately a growing class. This program seeks to offer help wherever possible in the form of supply of basic needs to alleviate the hardship of the single working mother. This is a tall order. Not all would be touched. But some will be and for the better too.
The challenges faced by the single- working mothers in the suburbs of Washington Metropolitan have led to the initiation of the first local program by Us-Liberia Charity Organization. Though a start-up, we are committed to bringing help to the needy.
suburban single working mother has fallen out of the range of the well
articulated non-governmental inner city welfare assistance programs. Food,
rent and child-care leaves virtually nothing from a salary base of
$30,000. A recent survey of single working mothers in Washington
Metropolitan reveals an average income that is less than $30,000 per
annum. “ Having a spare change of just five dollars could mean if there
would be dinner on the table for my child on some evenings and not having
to buy toiletries because I have them given to me could make a whole lot
of difference…..” This is an authentic statement by a struggling
single mom in Oxon Hill, Maryland.
