Single Mom

Join us in celebrating how Jesus Christ has changed lives through the various ministries of Sheridan House. Whether it’s a child who’s life has been restored through our residential program, a single mom and her children who have been offered hope through our single parent ministry, or an individual or family who have broken through and free from an emotional/behavioral struggle through our counseling center; we give all the glory, honor, and praise to Jesus Christ for changed lives. He is the Way, Truth, and Light.

Offering Hope & Meeting Needs

Call it a coupon, a voucher, a ticket, a token or slip… Stretching your dollars by being a coupon-savvy shopper was the topic of our last training session for single moms.

Leannette Hernandez of TeachMe2$ave conducted two high-energy sessions instructing our moms on how to make their dollars go further by taking advantage of freebie offers, coupons, and hot deals.  The practical “where and how-to” was explained in a fun and motivational way to our 85 single moms who attended.  They learned and laughed throughout the day as table and door prizes were given to the winning moms!

Guard Your Heart

“Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.”  Proverbs 4:23

“It can’t be wrong, when it feels so right.”   So goes the lyrics of an old romantic song.  Really?

Thankful Hearts

The constant stream of 340 single moms coming to get their turkey and “fixin’s” at our annual Thanksgiving outreach was a joy to behold!  One could see the look of relief and joy on the moms’ faces, knowing they would be able to provide a delicious meal for their children on Thanksgiving Day — all because someone cared to give!

Teens Give Back

When friends Angela Lugo (14 years) and Melina Nunez (17 years) walked through the door of Sheridan House this summer, everyone was so happy to see them.  Escorted by Renee Weinstein, Angela’s grandma and a stellar volunteer of Sheridan House, both girls have served faithfully for our Back-to-School Event for the last five years.

Another Great Story…

I absolutely loved the career workshop with Ruth!  She was inspiring, uplifting and funny.  I have told so many people about her and how great the seminar was. –  Nichol

The seminar itself was excellent and I picked up several great tips.  I will be redoing my resume today.  Ruth was wonderful.  She was very understanding and at the same time she “told it like it is” which I really appreciated. –  Linda

Letter of Gratitude…

When I first came to Sheridan House, I was newly single with 3 children.  I was scared and was stepping into the unknown of raising 3 kids on my own.  I moved to Florida after I divorced to be closer to my parents because I knew that my mother would be my greatest help in raising my kids.  Unfortunately, my mom passed in December 2010.  It was then that my church introduced me to Sheridan House and I have never been so blessed.

Pretty In Pink…

Single Moms in the pink…

Pink tablecloths, pink flowers, pink handouts, chocolate hearts, lace, and tables laden with goodies…Was it a Valentine’s Day brunch, or was it a training class for single moms?  Well…it was both!

Another Great Story…

Bubbling with excitement, Sarah told us that she was finally able to purchase her own home!  She is a hard-working, single mom who faithfully serves the Lord full-time at her church.  After years of working as a mentor in a discipleship group-home, Sarah was ready to move out and into her own home along with her children.  She prayed and saved diligently for 5 years; and the Lord recently blessed her with a home that is beyond what she imagined!

Thanksgiving Blessings Wrap-Up

The constant stream of single moms coming to get their turkey and “fixin’s” at our annual Thanksgiving outreach was a joy to behold!  On their faces one could see the look of relief and joy, knowing they would be able to provide a delicious meal for their children on Thanksgiving Day — all because someone cared to give!  On Saturday, November 20, Sheridan House, along with 60+ volunteers, gave away much more than turkeys and groceries.  We offered hope and encouragement to several hundred single moms through the love of Jesus.  Don’t just take our word for it.  Here is what one grateful mom said:
