Come & Build Your Dream With Us!

 

1) As a single mother what opportunities are out there for you?

2) Do you know where to go to find better opportunities?

3) Do you need to improve on a skill to get you to that new opportunity and do you know where to start to get help on those new opportunities?

 

Come talk to us at SMILE and we can help direct you. SMILE is an organization dedicated to single mothers. If you're a single mom... it's a place just for you, complete with friends, mentors, teachers and mommies just like you.

 

 

Have you Dared to Dream yet? Write those dreams down, set some goals to help reach those dreams, include a budget with that goal in mind and go for it. Remember aim high and don't let fear overcome you, just go for it and we here at S.M.I.L.E. can help you.

 

S.M.I.L.E. MEETINGS ARE MOVING! Berwick will meet the 4th Monday of every month from 5:30-6:30 at NCChurch 212 w. 11th Street Berwick.

Dream-Learn-Care-Create Program

This program has been created to build a reading library for the children of single mothers. Our goal is to encourage our mothers to read with their children to show them how fun reading is and to create a good habit while they are young. To encourage their older children the importance of reading and by talking with their children about the book it gives them quality time with that child allowing the child a special bond with their mother that will carry forward in their life. We will meet at our monthly meeting every 4th Monday of the month where our mothers will receive a brief life skill nugget, a meal for their family, their children will have an activity and they will receive a book before leaving. The mothers must register at our June 22nd, July 27th and Aug.24th meetings. Our meetings begin at 5:30 pm and will end at about 7:30 pm. This program is offered to single mothers living in  Berwick, Shickshinny, Nescopeck, Benton, Stillwater, Mifflin, Fishing Creek, North & South Center Township, and Luzerne county townships. This program has been funded by the Central Susquehanna Community Foundation.
