1 Million Moms Off Welfare
The One Million Moms OFF Welfare™ (1MMOW) celebrates and aims to liberate the working poor and unemployed mothers of America by empowering them to reduce welfare dependency and achieve self-sufficiency. The 1MMOW is an initiative of Can I Live, Inc., a resident-driven, national non-profit organization dedicated to challenging the U.S. welfare system by revealing the problems in policy implementation that, for America’s moms, too often promote dependence rather than independence.Click to Learn More
You cannot move One Million Moms OFF Welfare without addressing the needs of fathers. In fact, research shows that you can predict how long a mom will stay dependent on social services just by looking at the amount of child support she receives. With fatherless homes being so prevalent it’s a no-brainer why African Americans who make up 12% of the US population make up more than half of the prison and welfare systems.Click to Learn More
Advocating & Advancing Opportunities for the Communities We Call Home.
At Can I Live, we believe that all Americans are created equal and possess the inalienable rights to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness—and to justice under the law.
Unfortunately, many of the entitlement programs provided to millions of families living at or below poverty are structured in a way that keeps them trapped in a cycle of dependence.
Our mission is to provide a proven, repeatable blueprint to breaking free from government dependency in order to start building a sustainable lifestyle of freedom and independence.
Staying Dependent Will Cost Your Mental, Physical, Emotional, & Spiritual Health
If not stopped, this vicious cycle of poverty will continue for generations to come. Criminal activity induced by poverty will rise, mental health depression will increase, toxic and strained relationships will remain stagnant—which means, teenage pregnancy, single-parent households, fatherless homes, juvenile delinquency, mass incarceration. And, the list goes on and on.

I remember being homeless and going down to apply for help at a local non-profit with my son and being given a tent to sleep in the park. That was the moment, I knew that there was no way I could live like that and subject my children to such living conditions. I followed the principles and strategies of provided by Can I Live and got my life on track. Today, my husband and I purchased our own home, we run a small business and I am almost complete with my Bachelors in Business Administration.
I too, am committed to helping others do the same.
