Equipping Single moms to emerge as confident women and caring moms

Emerge Mothers Academy believes in the power of coming alongside single mothers and offering practical, comprehensive intervention and resources to help single mothers thrive. 

We believe mothers, in their healthiest and highest capacities, are instrumental in raising children. And we also believe in the confidence they can display to their children as they grow into leaders.

Parenting is hard, especially alone. If we can give these women the support and tools they need, we can change their entire future. 

Emerge Mothers Academy is a multi-service nonprofit. Services include; work-preparation, social support, financial literacy education, parenting classes, mentoring, and a micro-loan grant initiative. Emerge Mothers Academy is continuing to grow and expanding 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.
