88.4% of single mothers live in poverty, with 51.9% living in extreme poverty. Without a ride, there is little to no chance of improving the situation. It’s also a challenge to get a car to every single parent. But with the ease of new technology and innovative businesses, you can donate a ride to a single parent family to help them be there for that job-interview, schooling, critical healthcare, or day-care.
There were 12 million single parent families in the USA during 2016, more than 80% were headed by single mothers. Almost half of the 17.2 million children being raised by single mothers live below the poverty line. Without transportation, there is no hope for better education or better employment. Donating a vehicle or money for a car blesses them with opportunity to better their situation.
Being a single parent in a major metropolitan area comes with unique challenges. It also has some advantages. One advantage your donation will help them seize is public transit. Without transportation, there is no hope for better education or better employment. With a modestly generous donation you can provide crucial transportation for a family in need, and restore hope.
More than 1 in 3 single mother families lived in poverty in 2015. A US Census Bureau report states: “Single-parent renters in major metropolitan areas are 7 times more likely to lack a motor vehicle than their owner counterparts.” Poverty keeps most single parents from owning a home or apartment, which means they are also without car. While it may be difficult to get cars to all of those in need, it is also very valuable for those living in major metropolitan areas to have access to public transit, to meet their crucial transportation needs. To this end we ask for your generous donation to provide hope to single parent families with a transit pass for their family.
5.3 million single-parent families below the poverty line in 2015. 4.4 million lead by a female. Some are fortunate to have a car; but, they are burdened by repair costs they can’t afford. Instead of giving them a new car, you generous donation will help them repair and utilize what they do have.
