Because You're Worth It!
What is 1MMOW?
The One Million Moms OFF Welfare® (1MMOW) is a 10 year strategy which advocates for systems change and policy reform, innovates program delivery and educates and empowers assisted families to reduce welfare dependency and achieve self-sufficiency.
The goals of One Million Moms OFF Welfare® (1MMOW) are simple:
- Increase earnings for moms,
- Decrease dependency on social welfare programs,
- Increase taxes for local, state and federal budgets, and
- Spur economic growth for local business economies
The Blueprint to a Sustainable Lifestyle
No more shameful struggling, handouts and unclear or blurry pathways.
Having gone through the welfare system with four children, and learning that this system which promised to provide for me and my family was the one thing that truly was holding me back. I have built the bridge to financial liberty and our partners have built the vehicles by which to travel.
Together, we will eliminate our dependency and elevate our minds to the higher purpose for which we were created. Until now, we have never had a strategy that addresses the things that make us dependent, as well as the policies that make it so challenging for us to break free.
Through this viable pathway, residents are supported with personal and professional growth, career coaching, life management, systems navigation (i.e., community college and workforce development), and referrals to community resources (i.e., mental health, etc.).
Residents who desire to start and run a small business need support with taking their really big idea and proving market feasibility. Through this pathway, students learn the fundamentals of business and financial principles as they launch their minimum viable product.
Through this track, resident leaders are taught the foundational principles of leadership, governance, and resident council board operation. It is important that residents understand how to negotiate their stake as equity partnership in their upcoming redevelopment deals.
