I was introduced to Eve's Daughters through our church. I had gone through a divorce and felt very alone with little support in the area. Eve's Daughters was a place that I could go and not feel like I was going through the journey on my own and could develop a support system with other women going through a similar experience. Although, I started out as a mom attending the monthly dinners and various parenting workshops; I ended up volunteering as well. I wanted to give back in some way. I also volunteer at the annual art fundraiser. It feels so good to help other women going through the tough and challenging transition of divorce and solo parenting. Eve's Daughters is a blessing, and a much needed support system for single moms!

Eve's Daughters is an organization that helps single moms get back on their feet with community, seminars, financial help, and so much more. We are volunteers who make a meal one night a month about four times a year. It is a privilege and a blessing to us to be able to make a meal so these moms can come together and share with one another and to spur one another on. The children also get to interact and make crafts and share with one another. Sharing stories and knowing that one is not alone on this tough journey is refreshing and encouraging and gives one energy to keep going even when life is really hard. We are also donors and we appreciate that Eve's Daughters works hard to use money wisely and efficiently to help mom's in crisis get through and feel like someone cares and they can make it. This is a tough journey to make and Eve's Daughters helps ease the burden in real and practical ways that changes lives. We are honored to be part of this organization and be able to support through volunteering and financial means.

I am a single Mom with two children at home. Raising children and keeping a house together on my own has been difficult, lonely and challenging at times. Eve's Daughters has been a ray of sunshine, giving encouragement, advice, connection to resources and hope. They have blessed my family several times during the Christmas season with gift cards. I would not have been able to do anything for the holiday without this. Recently, as I am waiting for my child support to begin again, I was given a financial gift to help with my rent. Eve's Daughters is comprised of leaders that have been in my shoes and experienced the things and feelings that I am. It is a powerful thing to see that it can be done, single, and it can be done well.

I’ve been part of Eve’s Daughters since September of 2011, and seen then I’ve been able to meet other single moms who are in or in similar situations likes myself. It’s not only been a great place to meet other moms, but it’s also allowed me to have a network when I needed help with a situation. I personally would recommend it to other single moms, of all ages.

I'm a 25 year old single mom of a toddler; I contacted Eve's Daughters to see how I could help, and find some like minds in the area. I have had regular meetings with Karen Sjoblom, who has been an incredible mentor and friend. They offer financial and legal help, as well as clothing, food and invaluable support in often tough situations.

I recommend Eve's Daughters to any other moms I run into, and attend their dinners as much as I can. They're amazing and have far exceeded any expectations I could have had :)

I been involved with Eve's Daughters since these women starting dreaming about a group like this. They are dedicated, experienced single moms who understand what it's all about. They have raised great children and are trying to help make the journey a bit easier for other single moms . Supporting Eve's Daughters is a way to help single moms when you don't know how else to help those women in your circle. Please join me in helping them help others.

I have donated to Eve's Daughters from the start and continue to contribute to this wonderful organization. They support single moms and their families emotionally and financially, on a continual basis and/or giving them that one-time "boost" to get over the hurdle to keep going. They have fought to get a breast exam for a mom with a family history of breast cancer who couldn't afford it and could not get other breast cancer charities to help her. They helped with a car repair for a stranded mom. They offer emotional support and respite in the form of monthly get-togethers. I am also impressed that moms who have been helped by Eve's Daughters have returned to help other moms.

I lead a single parent ministry nearby, and am frequently referring our female participants to also become active in Eve's Daughters. The leader, Karen, is a wealth of resource for aiding and encouraging single moms. Those in our ministry who attend their events receive helpful education and are uplifted by being involved. Key concepts learned at Eve's Daughters filter into our group meetings, and thereby help a wider span of single parents in the overall community. Karen also spoke at our group last year and it was so inspiring! This organization genuinely cares for single moms and tends to their real and felt needs on consistent basis. Eve's Daughters fills a gap for a great need in our community! I am convinced that entire families benefit from the care single moms receive here. I will continue to refer single moms with confidence!

This organization helped me through one of the toughest times in my life - my husband filed papers. It was a hard transition for me, especially being from India and the cultural implications. I had a 2 year old to consider, had just landed a job but in a very tough economic climate. I attended several of Eve's daughter's dinners sometimes simply to socialize with other women like me. They also helped me find a roommate and provided a lifeline at one of the most difficult transitions in my life. Kudos to all the volunteers and staff - they deserve an award for their kindness and dedication.
