I’m one of those who need help but how do I ask when my ex has a brilliant mind, puts on a pity show, frames me, shows up for the short visitation with the kids but than neglects everything else or tries to sabatoge me and my kids life . I have always done everything on my own while he abused me and I know I’m the only one responsible for my kids at the end of the day. My family helps with legal fees which is very costly it’s shocking.I am writing this to spread awareness and validate any… Read more »

I’m so happy to see this happening in Crown Heights and thank you Collive for deeming it newsworthy.
To all my sister single mothers out there, i salute you and wish you all the best for an easy lead up to Pesach and yomtov itself despite the many challenges physically and emotionally.

There are many good people out there, and many organizations doing great work at there, caring and helping those in need.
This being an organization personally founded by the Rebbe (they say the only one) it is important to support it, and those receiving from it are doubly blessed.

heartwarming and beautiful

as a single mom myself I am so happy to see this. to the single mom in the article: you expressed it all so eloquently. we hold our heads high, we work ourselves to the bone… some of us have been betrayed, abandoned or abused in unspeakable ways and yet we continue to love and give to our children, all the while we are completely depleted by what we’ve been and are going through. it is heartwarming to see that there is an organization that has chosen to address this and is using its resources to help our own. some… Read more »

So so special

Thank you to all the organizers
Knowing the Rebbe established this fund and that caring people continue to run it makes one feel like the Rebbe is really with us, right now
Thank you for giving to a group of women that it’s hard for them to ask for themleves

Same here

That letter from the single Mom is very much appreciated and brings some awareness on some level to those who have no idea.
Like number 4 ,the single I know from our lubavitch out of town community will not ask for help.
Is there a number I can call on her behalf?

How beautiful!!

My relative is a single mother who, like #4, does not ask for help for herself – anyone know how I can get her this support?

Such a big mitzvah!

I am a good friend of a single mother in crown heights who does more than she can handle except she just does not ask for help. What number can I call on her behalf?

I remember

Decades ago, receiving checks from the Rebbe ( kupas Rabbeinu) before you tov. I was a struggling single mom, living out of Crown Heights, so the checks were mailed, and I saved the envelopes with the Rebbe’s return address to hold my Rebbe dollars. It’s very special to receive assistance before yom tov, but when it comes from a fund established by our Rebbe, it just feels so much more special. Ladies, hold your head high. IY”H the tide will turn, and soon you (and your children) will be able to contribute to these funds instead of relying on them!… Read more »
