About The Life of a Single Mom.

The Life of a Single Mom ("TLSM"), headquartered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is an award-winning, fully accredited 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that exists to see that no single mom walks alone. Our single parent programs focus on transitioning single parent families to self-sufficiency, promoting positive outcomes, and educating them in critical areas, including parenting, finances, and overall health & wellness.

Our original single mom support group model was established in January, 2007, and grew more than 1,000% in its first year. That model has served as a catalyst to launch support groups in over 1,500 churches & communities across the globe. Over 115,350 children have received indirect services through TLSM and 50,000 single parents have been served in the United States and 18 additional countries.

Today, TLSM provides education and support for pastors and community leaders on how to meet the needs of single parent homes, while focusing on mentorship, education, and eliminating poor statistical data in these homes. TLSM serves as a catalyst for the church and community to make a lasting impact by becoming an information gateway that connects single moms.
