coming alongside single mothers with support services

Equipping single mothers through support services in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas to help them, and their children, thrive. 

Emerge Mothers Academy was founded as a 501(c)(3) in 2012 providing nonprofit support services equipping single mothers. Founders Becca Erickson and Judy Kruger are a mother-daughter team who both have lived experience as single moms. Knowing both the challenges presented in solo-parenting and the powerful difference that a supportive community can make, Emerge Mothers Academy was born. Emerge Mothers Academy believes in coming alongside single mothers and offering practical, comprehensive intervention and resources to help single mothers thrive. Our mission is to equip single mother with the resources to emerge as confident women and caring moms.

In 2013, Emerge Mothers Academy served 19 single mothers. Mothers received services in parenting classes, job readiness support, and mental health support. Emerge Mothers Academy has since matured into a multi-service nonprofit. Services include; work-preparation, social services, counseling, financial literacy education, parenting classes, mentoring, and a micro-loan grant program. Emerge Mothers Academy is continuing to grow and expanding programming and service sites throughout the Twin Cities. In 2020, Emerge Mothers Academy joined a charity collaborative, Center of Belonging, where Emerge Mothers Academy now holds its headquarters.
