In addition to providing the development tools needed to assist single mothers in becoming financially self sufficient and the ability to thrive, we provide supportive services to aid families with their everyday living needs.
With our organization's mission always in mind, we strive to support families with a holistic approach. Consequently, a support group for single mothers is available to meet social, emotional, and spiritual needs. Meet-up dates and locations are announced on the events calendar monthly.
THE FURNITURE BANK OF METRO ATLANTA REFERRAL
We see every challenge as an opportunity, consequently our partnership with The Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta helps to ensure that our mothers are better prepared to manage the unique situations they find themselves in daily to include the need for furniture. The Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta assists clients by providing free furniture and household goods. Individuals and families moving out of homelessness, low income, living with HIV/AIDS, or fleeing domestic violence are eligible for this program. If you are in need of furniture, please contact us to see if you qualify. Please note that you will not be able to get an appointment for furniture from the Furniture Bank unless you are accepted as a client for service(s) from Single Mothers Matter. Once mothers are accepted into our programs they are then eligible for a referral to the Furniture Bank if they possess one of the above mentioned statuses. Mothers can then choose between the following two appointment types:
Curbside Deliverance - ($100-$150 fee): Mothers pick out items and the items are delivered to the curb the same day. Mothers are responsible for the necessary labor to move the items into their apartment/house.
In-Home Delivery - ($200): Mothers pick out items and the items are delivered into their home the following day. Delivery does not include furniture set up.
The Furniture Bank delivers within 50 miles of their warehouse. Locations that are more than 25 miles away but are within the 50 miles have an additional $50 fee for the extended service. Please contact us if you desire to support mothers with delivery fees or furniture set up.
Single Mothers Matter understands that transportation is one of the many challenges for single mothers. As a result we provide rides to participants of our programs to the grocery store on Saturdays between the hours of 8 am and noon. Appointments must be made by Wednesday of the requested week.
