Our Approach

Our Approach

Kathy's Place is designed to reimagine and revolutionize how we support single moms and their families in order to create meaningful, generational change. Kathy's Place will support single moms and their children by surrounding families in a caring community; by providing beautiful, safe, dignified and deeply affordable housing; by creating the time and money for moms to complete educational and trade programs that provide career living wage opportunity; by connecting moms with community business partners; by co-developing long and short term family plans and accountability benchmarks; and by simply giving families enough time and breathing room to not only succeed, but to experience joy in the journey.

  • Building a Community

    We want to build a village, because we know that it takes one. Kathy’s Place creates a small community of homes for single moms within urban neighborhoods. Housing design will foster connection, with access to safe community gathering spaces, playgrounds, tutoring and mentoring spaces, and spaces for childcare and holistic healthcare. We are intentional in neighboring with each other and with the surrounding community, to serve and be served by one another.

  • Deeply Affordable Housing

    Our housing communities are deeply affordable and will be located in close proximity to transportation and community resources. Affordability in a resource rich environment will reduce family stress and allow moms the time to invest in their children and in their family’s success. Families will be provided access to all parts of the program and cost will be variable based on each family’s unique circumstances.

  • Education and Career Development

    Kathy’s Place will invest in career development that will allow moms to earn a stable, sustainable living wage for their families. This includes enrollment or participation in 6-24 month education and trade programs, as well as partnering moms with small business and corporate partners who can provide a future career path. Our goal is to identify corporate partners known for empowering and supporting women in the workplace.

  • Individualized Family Plan

    Our individualized family plan is all about creating a road map for success that meets the unique needs of each family. Each family will identify their barriers and challenges, as well as their goals, dreams, and plans for the future. Each family has a trauma informed navigator who will help them with resources and will provide accountability as they move along their family plan journey.

  • Time

    Time is a commodity that is scarce for all single moms, and Kathy’s Place wants to provide moms with the time they need to create meaningful, transformational change for their family. Kathy’s Place welcomes families into our program for up to three years, allowing them enough time to succeed in their family journey and break the cycle.
