Mothers Helping Mothers
“Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.” —Marion C. Garretty
Andrea L. CLark
My name is Andrea L. Clark, I am a single mother of four beautiful children and the grandmother of 8!. I didn't start out as a single parent but due to circumstances outside of my control I became one. In the course of life I have helped raise other children that I did not give birth to because the parents were not able to take care them due to various addictions and financial issues. As a single parent I found that whenever I needed help I was always told that I "made too much money" but you couldn't tell me that when I was having a hard time making ends meet and going from one paycheck to another. I was never on drugs or anything so the many options that were out there were only set up if I had some sort of addiction. I feel that there needs to be more help out there for single mothers (parents) who even though they are working they are still able to get help! I know the struggle of the single mother is a real issue in the world that needs to be addressed. I founded M.O.M so that I can help make a difference in the lives other single mothers by helping them to find resources and various programs to help them reach their goals of self sufficiency
