Single moms can often feel alone and with minimal support or true empathy. When organization founder Janelle Reed found herself as a single mom, she knew she had to do something to bring together the community’s resources for single moms and provide a place of refuge for women to share their experiences with those that can offer compassion and support. SingleMomzRock seeks to empower local women with the tools they need to rock their journey, parenting and relationship with God.

Mission statement

SingleMomzRock provides encouragement and support through all seasons of a single mom’s journey.

Why was your organization started?

SingleMomzRock founder, Janelle Reed, was married to her high school sweetheart. After 12 years of marriage, she was faced with a divorce and being a full-time single mom of two daughters. Through this life change and the many struggles she faced, God laid on her heart the need for encouragement and support through different resources for other single moms.

Whom does your organization serve?

Single moms no matter the season they are in.

What services do you provide?

We partner with local agencies to share resources with single moms for whatever their need may be. We also provide social support to single moms through events specifically designed for them all while showing them the love of Christ.

How does someone obtain services?

They may contact us through our website,

Do you accept volunteers?

Absolutely! Our highest need for volunteers lies in our childcare area at our monthly meetings.

What kind of donations do you need/accept?

Monetary donations are always appreciated. We also collect gas cards. For specific circumstances, we will reach out to the community for specific needs as they arise.

Is this a local chapter of a larger organization? If so, when did this chapter begin?

Springfield is the original SingleMomzRock, although a SingleMomzRock Lawrence County launched in November 2014 to serve single moms in that area.
