Established in 2010, Shelter From the Rain is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, based out of Savannah that provides assistance to single mothers. Their vision is to create a community of strong, economically independent single mothers through education, mentorship, personal & professional development, homeownership, health and wellness.
The group says that In the United States, one out of three children live in a single-parent family with 83 percent of these single-parent families headed by a woman. Single mothers are more likely to experience job displacement, poor academic attainment, live in poverty, and have episodic or chronic depression. It is critical that the community work together to support families in their journey to achieve economic mobility.
