Co-Abode: Single Mothers Share Housing

I’ve meant sev­er­al times to men­tion this here, and keep for­get­ting: Co-abode: Sin­gle Moth­ers Share Hous­ing I no longer remem­ber where I first heard it men­tioned, but it sounds like a great idea. Here’s the basic stuff from their site.

ARE YOU a sin­gle moth­er in need of a more com­fort­able liv­ing sit­u­a­tion for your­self and your children?

ARE YOU a sin­gle moth­er in need of emo­tion­al sup­port from anoth­er sin­gle mom who has gone through what you are now facing?

ARE YOUR kids always watch­ing TV or play­ing video games because they have no play­mates or room for phys­i­cal activity?

This ser­vice can be your relief and source of support!

We’ve designed sev­er­al pro­grams to help make your life easier.

Sin­gle Moth­ers House Sharing

* Enables you to afford a bet­ter house or apart­ment, with­in a safer school district.

* Allows you to halve the cost of rent and over­head expens­es free­ing up much need­ed resources.

* Light­ens the bur­den of cook­ing, gro­cery shop­ping, laun­dry, home­work, car-pool­ing and child super­vi­sion which means you’re less tired and stressed out and bet­ter able to care for the kids and you might even have a lit­tle per­son­al time left for yourself.

* Helps divorced moms to hold on to the fam­i­ly home by bring­ing in a mom room­mate to help cov­er expenses.

* Empow­ers those in abu­sive sit­u­a­tions to escape know­ing there’s anoth­er mom there to pool resources with and get some emo­tion­al support. 

Our Cir­cle of Friends is there for moms to con­nect for finan­cial and emo­tion­al sup­port includ­ing child care, car pool­ing, and sup­port on par­ent­ing or just to have some­one to talk to when times are tough. Come join one of our sup­port groups run­ning in 22 states host­ed by 38 sin­gle moms. And if there isn’t one in your neigh­bor­hood, come vol­un­teer, it’s the best way to make new friends who real­ly under­stand what you’re going through.

Our Afford­able Hous­ing Access pro­gram is in the ear­ly stages but we’ve start­ed to con­nect low income sin­gle moms with sub­si­dized hous­ing in safe neigh­bor­hoods and rep­utable school districts.

Our Sin­gle Moth­er’s Resource pro­gram, which is also in the devel­op­ment stages, is designed to pro­vide vital refer­ral infor­ma­tion on sub­si­dized child care, med­ical, den­tal and men­tal health care, advice on mon­ey man­age­ment, par­ent­ing and nutri­tion, afford­able car and health insur­ance as well as refer­ral to legal aid for those who might need it.

Our Out­reach Pro­gram is a col­lab­o­ra­tion with oth­er com­mu­ni­ty ser­vice pro­grams so that all Co-abode sin­gle moms might learn about and gain access to the essen­tial ser­vices that they pro­vide and of course, that their par­tic­i­pants might have access to ours.

Our inten­tion with all of these pro­grams is to enable sin­gle moms gain the finan­cial, emo­tion­al and com­mu­ni­ty sup­port essen­tial to raise healthy, hap­py children…
