The Jeremiah Program added 21 units of rental housing for single mothers and their children to its campus. The program offers a wide array of self-sufficiency services as well as an on-site child development center and a life skill education facility.

While living at Jeremiah, women build their fiscal management skills by paying rent and managing their household budgets. Program participants are enrolled in school, work part time, and participate in life skill education. They work on individual development plans and set goals related to academics, work, parenting, and life skills.
