Grants for Single Hispanic Mothers

If you’re a single Hispanic mom and you struggle everyday to live the day right, then you are not alone.

The fact is that only 15% of women who are going through a divorce are being awarded by the court for spousal support, and about 34% of those women doesn’t even receive what is rightfully due to them. What is worst is that more than half of those women doesn’t receive the full amount of child support. This is practically the reason why a lot of  Latino women are applying for a Hispanic single women grants for them to be able to survive the life that is left for them.

    I am a single Hispanic mother of two. I have a daughter that is two and a son who is almost six months old. As soon as I finished school I went straight to college. I live with my parents and I am not making a lot of money. My sister watches my kids while i go to school. My days are going to change to Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. That is full time for ITT. I am going to college for my Criminal Justice degree in Boise, ID at ITT Tech. I’ve been looking for work so I could get a place of my own but every application I filled out I have not heard from them. I would like to take my kids to a day care so I don’t have to worry about them, while I am attending school. With this grant it could help me be able to go for four years and maybe even more. I would love to give my kids a better life then I had and I would love to stop asking my parents for help with my kids. So with your help it would mean so much to me. Thank you, for letting me take up a little of your time.

    I’m a single Hispanic mother of three children. Eight months ago my ex-husband left us without a way to support ourselves sufficiently. We were evicted and have had to live with family and friends.
    I am enrolled in a college and work full time but there is still not enough money for me to support all four of us. The father has not given me any financial support but I really don’t want to rely on him.
    I want to be self sufficient, that is why I am going to college to get my BSN. I just need some assistance until I can support myself and my children.

    I am a single Hispanic mother of twin 4 year old girls. After losing my job a year ago life has changed tremendously. I live with my mother and brother to help one another out. After being able to support my children the best way I knew how I have come across many difficulties. I found that without a college education it has not been easy landing a job where I can be the head of household for my children and myself. I want to set the best example I possibly can for my girls. I am willing to move closer to the college where I can become an LVN or RN. Even though I may move away from family but I feel more of a burden at home then any help to my mother, who is retired and should be able to enjoy her retirement years and not have to worry about helping me but me helping her instead. A grant would really help with child care and any fees to help pay for college. Life can be hard at times but dreams can be accomplished when someone can offer a helping hand to those in need. Thank you for the opportunity.

  9. Maria Santana | October 7, 2011 at 1:49 pm |

    I am a single Hispanic mother of four loving children. I had leukemia when my oldest child was three. The doctors told me that had I waited two more weeks I would not make it. After that, I was blessed with three other children. I didn’t want my oldest to be alone in life if I would not be here because of my cancer. I then found myself alone with four children having to care for them by myself. My children’s father didn’t find it important enough to be with us anymore. I always wanted to go back to school to better myself but then I found it difficult to find someone who would help me with three kids while the oldest went to school. Of course, after several years on Social Services, I found out about a program that Social Services had to offer to better myself but I was never able to find a job that I went to school for. So, because of that, I had to get any job that would at least help my make it through. My kid’s father still didn’t find it necessary to support his kids. Now after 21yrs, with my oldest married and having his family; I still find myself struggling to support my other children and now try to be a grandmother too. I am so exhausted of having jobs that just help me get by. I need to go back to school so I can finally get that job that is out there for me. I know that this program only helps the ones that they feel need it the most but, I tell you that if I had the opportunity to do this it wouldn’t be wasted because not only would I be able to finally take care of my family properly but I would also give back to those who need help too. I never forgot those who helped me throughout the years and for that I would do the same for others. Please help me make this possible.

    Hello. My name is Stephanie. I am a single mother of my 19 month old daughter. I’m currently at the lowest point of my life. I’m bouncing around house to hotel and back. I just got hired but only part time. I do get assistance from the state but still I struggle. My daughters father has only seen her twice and does absolutely nothing. I have been to college but did not finish. I even tried online school but I am more of a hands on learner so I need a teacher in front of me. I do everything I can do in my power to take care of my baby. I do hair and I have resorted to donating plasma which in the end is not worth it but it provides thwarting money I need to buy diapers wipes and things for my child. I have no family or friends around who can help. Fortunately I just started recieving daycare assistance so I can work. I know I need to go back and FINISH Nursing school so I can start my career and be able to provide the best for my princess. I’m trying so hard to get an apartment. A stable place she can call home. Getting this grant will help so much. I will be able to provide stability for her and allow me to start college. I struggle with a pain so deep everyday it drives me insane. The pain bof knowing I can not fully support my child. I need a little help to het me on my feet. I’m an intelligent mature woman and I do have a life plan. I just need to overcome certain obstacles in my way. This has been a prayer of mine for so long. I also pray I receive a response. Help is so needed. My daughter is the world to me and the reason I have been doing all I can do. Please hear out this cry for help. Thank you so much.

  11. paola holmes | December 1, 2011 at 5:05 am |

    my name is Paola i am a young hispanic mother of a 3 month old baby. my ex husband left me when i was just 3 weeks pregnant. I was living in california until he kicked me out and i had to move back to ohio and move to different places. When my son was born i got the oppurtunity to move back with my parents. During my pregnancy i was not allowed to work due to placenta previa. I decided to go back to school but i didnt have a car. I want to stude education and get a bachelors. My ex hasnt asked about our son since he was born. He doesnt send us money and all i have is an email adress for him. I dont know his adress so child support can not help me out until they can verify where he lives. I want a future for my son. I am worried about what i can bring to the table for my son not so much for myself but him. I go to different places here where i live for diapers. I am going to start school in may but unfortionatly the closest school that hasmy degree is 45min a way. If the grant was given to me i would fulfill the life ive always wanted for my child the life i never had. I could get a job as a teacher and help kids continue their education. I need the grant so i can pay for my education as well as use that education to help those that need it. Bless you all for taking the time.

  12. Le-An Pino | July 16, 2013 at 3:26 pm |

    Hello my name is Le-An. I am a single Hispanic mother of a beautiful 1 1/2 year old boy. I am currently on medical leave from work not knowing a return date. I have been accepted to Westwood college online for fall, but am not able to pay the entire tuition, pay my medications, bills and the necessities that my son and I need. I have different family members coming to my apartment and helping me with everything. I am one that would never ask for help unless I am really in need for it. I have no support from his father at all. I am getting less than half of what I would be making if I would be working. That is not enough for anybody to live off. I am going to attend this school to better my son and myself. My son deserves the best in the world, and everything I do I do for him. I want him to live comfortably when I receive my degrees. For someone who doesn’t ask for help, I am asking for it now.

  13. To whom it may concern,
    My name is Nalda, I am 28 years old.Single mother of a 4 year old boy. I do not get any child support or help from the father of my son or his family. I am a waitress, Although I am very grateful for all the great tips, unfortunately I am always short on money and it seems like I’m always barely making it through. my bills consist of 1000 for rent about 100 more for gas and light.My mother helps me out with groceries, but I still got my cell phone bill, my gas and it seems like my sons shoe size grows every month.It gets quiet hard to provide all his needs on top of all my other bills.
    I recently applied for deferred action and now I have been given a social to allow me to go back to school and be able to provide for me and my son. I am Soo excited to be given the opportunity to be able to do something with my life. However, due to my legal status I do not qualify for any financial aid, I am looking for grants, and scholarships that can help me go back to school. I am interested in going to the lecord on blue program in Pasadena. I wake up thinking about pastries nd go to sleep thinking of what new recipe I can come up with. I have always had to work Soo hard for what I have. I think that I’m very passionate about what I want to study, and I think I am worthy of some grants nd scholarships out there. I would truly appreciate any kind of help available for me out there. Thankyou for your time and God bless..

    I am 31 yrs old, with three kids, my oldest is 13 and I have an 8 and six years old. Love them but I will talk about my life and how I ended up here searching for a grant. I was a teen mom was raised in poor low income home my whole childhood. My dad was an alcoholic and careless dad. and my mom had six of us and two grandkids from my oldest rebel sister. Growing up I always had loww low self-esteem. Was bullied in school for being the stinky chubby dirty girl.. I felt hopeless and alone. But I did my best to focus when I was there. I loved school. Writing, reading, and math. But bullies will push me away from my love for school. So I ended taking my G.E.D and passing it. But by that time I thought I had found someone who loved me. I was wrongggg! He was worst than my bullies! He was mentally and spiritually and psychological abusive… He was a strong alcoholic but the bread winner. I was called worthless, with not very much. But we have escaped..and I need a career plz help a survivor..and kids’

  15. Jasmine Betancourt | April 25, 2014 at 4:15 pm |

    Hello. My name is Jasmine Betancourt. I am a single mother of a wonderful 11 y/o boy. His father has been absent for all of his life and has never helped financially. After being in an out of school for several years and trying to balance work with being a mother, I am finally in the process of trying to fulfill my dream in obtaining my bachelor’s in Biology. My son and I are currently living with family, I work part time, and attend school full time. This year I graduate with my associates and I am trying to get into a university to obtain my bachelors. Unfortunately, I have a defaulted private student loan and was in major debt which was recently discharged in bankruptcy. I want nothing more then to be able to be self sufficient, finish my degree, and get a better job, but I am unable to finance my education at this time and that is why I need a grant. Thank you so much for this opportunity.

    I am a single Hispanic mother of two. My eldest is three, my youngest 19 months. We live with my parents, two sister, disabled aunt and her daughter, my uncle and my disabled grandmother, ten people in one house. I have a part time job and go to TAMUCC full time. My parents have been paying for everything up to when I got a job, however with all the medical issues and enhanced financial strain there is very little to go around. I have classes from 8-3 and go into work at 5-11, two days off a week which I use for studying and get paid maybe 300 a paycheck. There is very little time to take care of my daughters. Many of the governmental aid we apply for we are denied because we live with my parents instead of independently, however we would not make it if I didn’t have their ability to watch my children while I’m in school this summer. Fall semester is coming and I will have to put them in daycare and its going to be close to 800 dollars a month or more. The eldest child’s father is living with his parents and is trying to become a firefighter and has no money to give me to help us out. I am a pre-med student and studying to be a Psychiatrist, for the ability to help others with PTSD. Med school is very expensive, I want to hold off on getting loans but I don’t qualify for financial aid by FAFSA or my school so I have no other option for this coming fall. Money is the only things standing in between the life my children and I could lead successful and promising and a future of hardship and struggle. Thank you for your consideration and opportunity.

  17. Hi I am a 25 year old single Hispanic mother of two beautiful girls a 4yr old and a 2yr old. I have learned to survive by myself. At a very young age as my mother was a domestic violence victim and several years later after escaping that situation I found myself in her shoes. I have overcome so many obstacles in my life in which thanks to God I am where I am right now. I am no longer a victim I am in victory. I know that God will provide however I also know that God is willing to help but we have to take that step towards wanting/reaching out for help. This is a little part of me thank you for even taking the time to read this and I hope to hear from you soon. GOD BLESS YOU!

  18. Buenos Dias everyone. My name is Brandy Arellano I am 28 years old and I am one of the thousands of single Latina Mothers. I have four children, 2 boys, 2 girls. They are my pride and joy and I have done everything that I could possibly think of to give my children the life I never had. Being single is never easy, only one income to maintain 5 in a household is not the piece of cake I ordered. It has been too long and too hard to keep doing side jobs just to make ends meet and to make my children feel as if there is no struggle. Everyday I pray for some miracle to happen. Any who, I know I am not the only one struggling and waiting patiently for her turn to succeed. So I am writing this, In hopes that my struggle will soon be over and to be able to make the rest of the Latina world proud that another Hermana has self sacrificed and made it to the top with a business degree. It would be more than a blessing to receive a grant of any kind to kick start the dreams of a better future and happier days with my children and the start of my own business.

  19. I’m a 22 year old Hispanic mother to a 4 month baby girl. I am recently going through a divorce and am ready to start school so I don’t have to depend on child support. I want my daughter to also go to college so what better way is there than just showing her. Please consider me for this grant.

  20. Maria Garcia | March 3, 2015 at 8:54 pm |

    Everyday brings new challenges and new hopes. I am a mother of four amazing children who give me reason. We as a family sacrificed to get where we are and with out that struggle I don’t think we would be where we are today. We are happy family and my kids they are thriving in their lives. They are outstanding individuals who I am proud to be their mother.
    I am single mother, who lives from paycheck to paycheck. The courts did order child support and the last time my kids received a check it was total of $1.75 . I am a college graduate and soon my oldest daughter will be a college student leaving 3 kids home with their hopes and dreams to concur, which they will.

  21. Jessica Ortega | May 1, 2015 at 4:41 pm |

    Hello, my name is Jessica Ortega. I’m 28 years old and a single mother of a 3 year old beautiful little girl and a 3 month old beautiful baby girl. I’m a victim of family violence and since I decided to remove myself from that situation life has been better but tremendously hard for me. I don’t get child support from they’re father since he’s furious that he ended up in jail for family violence when I was 6 months pregnant. I know I have to try and be successful in life for my two little angels because they deserve the world. I was 8 1/2 months pregnant when I completed my G.E.D! I enrolled in E.P.C.C to study to be a radiologist which has always been my dream but there was always something holding me back. Now I can honestly say I’m ready to be the best I can be and if you guys would be willing to help me make my life a little easier I promise I will give it %110. I will not let you guys down. It would mean the world to me and my girls. I have a chronic illness and my girls only have me to depend on so I want to be the best that I can be because they dont deserve anything less. I clean houses for a living as a side job but that is not enough for my bills. I know they say it’ll be hard in the beginning but after you graduate it will ALL be worth it.( It sounds easier said than done) Especially being a single parent. I need to pay child care, gas, bills while I attend school and I would really appreciate if you guys would be so kind and help me accomplish my dreams for me and my girls. Thank you, I hope to hear from you guys soon. Also, thank you for helping single mothers in need. People like you guys make OUR world a better place!????

  22. I’m 22yrs old going to be 23 on June 22. I live with my mother and grandmother in a family home. I have a little boy and a little girl. My mother and grandmother support my children and I. I want to be able to give my kids a better life than what I had growing up. I will currently be taking classes for my GED & Applying At WalMart Since it’s closer to where I live. I would love to have some help. I honestly don’t know who my Son’s father is and my daughter’s father is no help at all he has my daughter and 2 other kids. He’s also abusive, more worried about drugs and drinking. My dad is the one who has told me about you all helping single Hispanic mothers like myself and I will do anything for my kids to have a better life. I don’t want to live off of food stamps all my life. I do plan on going to college to study business management and vetinarian medicine. I want to open a day care for single parents who can’t afford day cares such as myself. Maybe work out a payment plan with the single parents. My grandmother would always tell her friends and coworkers that I am her future vet and that’s something that I want to do for my grandma. I just want to show my kids that there is more to life than drugs and stuff like that.

  23. Maria Moreno | January 26, 2016 at 4:50 pm |

    Hello my name is Maria Moreno I am a single mother to a two-year old son. I recently became a full-time student at National University. Due to my divorce it has been very difficult for me to dig myself out of all my debt. National University alone is almost 1,600.00 a month with my monthly income it has been very difficult for me tp keep up with all of my bills not including daycare. I am going to school for my Bachelors in Health Care Administrative Management. My goal in life is to become an RN, but unfortunately you have to physically attend school full-time Monday to Friday. I cannot do that because I work full-time. I do what I can now which is why I am currently enrolled online and I get all of my work accomplished at night. My Mother suffered an aneurysm and four strokes and watching her suffer through all her surgeries I decided to go back to school and get my degree in the medical field. I graduated from Kaplan University in 2010 as a Health Care and Rehab Physical Therapy Technician and I would love to finish what I started. I would very much appreciate any help I can get. This grant will allow me to finish school and hopefully one day give someone else a lending hand when needed. Thank you for the opportunity.
