African American Independence Single Mother's Program

"Statistics may not define who a woman is, but they do say something about the obstacles she has to overcome to win the race."

- Anonymous


A poor child starts life at a disadvantage that can be difficult to overcome. He or she is more likely to have difficulty in school and more likely to become a teen parent. He or she is also more likely to remain poor as an adult. It's called the poverty cycle, and it can be difficult to break free from without help.

One out of two African American children living in single-mother homes live in poverty, and some 65% of African American children live in single mother households.

As the sage says, these statistics may not define who the black child will become, but they do say something about the obstacles he or she will have to overcome to succeed.

Aid For Starving Children is about giving African-American children in single-mother households a better opportunity to run the race. We believe that to help the child we must help the mother break the cycle of poverty that entraps both. To this end we sponsor programs that meet critical needs, develop life and work skills, and strengthen relationships with church and community to provide support and accountability over the long term.
