THAT? AN AREA NONPROFIT IS LOOKING TO CHANGE THE SINGLE MOM STATISTICS. THE FOUNDER OF SINGLE MOM STRONG TARA TAYLOR JOINS US LIVE FROM ROSEVILLE WITH MORE ON THEIR UPCOMING EVENTS, GOOD MORNING. SO WHERE ARE YOU GUYS? WE ARE AT ROLLER KING IN ROSEVILLE. WE HAVE MOM AND KIDS WITH SKATE TIME THIS MORNING. I LIKE THAT. SO WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS? I RAISED MY DAUGHTER AS A SINGLE MOM. I MANAGED TO BE PRETTY SUCCESSFUL AND RAISE A GREAT KID. SHE IS OFF NOW AT ASU LIVING HER DREAMS NOW AND I JUST WANTED TO HELP OTHER SINGLE MOMS. SOME OF IT WAS DIFFICULT AND I THOUGHT IF I CREATE A VILLAGE OF SINGLE MOMS IN SUPPORT OF EACH OTHER PERHAPS IT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN ALTOGETHER NOW? WHEN DID YOU START THIS? WE ARE ACTUALLY ONE YEAR IN THE MAKING. WE JUST HAD OUR ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY LAST MONTH AND IN THAT ONE YEAR WE HAVE BUILT A GREAT COMMUNITY OF SINGLE MOMS. NOW WE ARE TRYING TO REBUILD THE CHILDREN’S PROGRAMS, SO WE OFFER THREE DIFFERENT EVENTS PER MONTH. THERE IS A MOTHER CHILD EVENT LIKE THIS ONE WHERE WE FIND PLACES FOR OUR MOMS AND KIDS TO SPEND QUALITY TIME TOGETHER. WE ALSO HAVE AN EMPOWERMENT WORKSHOP EVERY MONTH WHERE WE TEACH LIFE SKILLS AND GIVE RESOURCES. THE FINAL EVENT EVERY MONTH IS MOM’S NIGHT OUT. WE GIVE MOBS THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE WITH THEIR PEERS. SO YOU HAVE SOMETHING GOING ON NEXT WEEKEND RIGHT? WHAT IS IT? YES WE DO. WE ARE DOING THE SMS COMMUNITY COLLEGE CHALLENGE. WE INVITE THE COMMUNITY TO MEET US FOR SINGLE MOMS. WE GO OUT AND PRACTICE FOR A 5K. WE WILL TRAIN EVERY WEEK AT ALL DIFFERENT LEVELS AND WE GET FIT TOGETHER. WE WILL LEARN HOW TO BECOME A BETTER COMMUNITY. SO WE START NEXT SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. SATURDAY AT McKINLEY PARK, SUNDAY AT MY DOUGH PARK. ALL OF THE INFORMATION IS AT THE SINGLE MOM STRONG WEBSITE. OKAY, WONDERFUL. LOOKS LIKE YOU’RE HAVING A GREAT TIME. THANK YOU FOR LETTING US KNOW ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION.
