Branson, MO – March 10, 2009 – JoDee Herschend had a vision nearly ten years ago to reach un-churched Single Moms with unconditional love, acceptance and friendship. Since that time the organization known as The Caring People has reached out to Single Moms throughout Southwest Missouri and abroad in El Salvador with a goal to be nationwide in the next 5 years.

The Caring People will be hosting a “caring woman” training Saturday, April 4, 2009 at the Murder Rock Clubhouse in Hollister, Missouri from 8:30 to 3:30 pm. All materials are free including lunch. The training equips Christian women with both the skills needed to mentor Single Moms, and also gives them an overview of the work of the organization. The caring women are the anchors of the organization and they quite literally “walk the love of Jesus” into the hearts of the Single Moms.

Cindy Shorey, Chief Operating Officer shared, “we know from research JoDee commissioned years ago that Single Moms desire acceptance, forgiveness, community, control, hope and reassurance, these indeed are her motivators. We train the caring women to focus on specific skills to provide a safe place for moms emotionally.” Shorey shares “for some Single Moms just a night out with other Single Moms helps ease the burden of parenting alone.”

Southwest Missouri hosts care groups throughout the region in various locations. The organization also hosts quarterly events that bring the Single Moms and their children together along with the volunteers and leadership of The Caring People. One single mom says “it feels like a giant family reunion, our own special community, our kids have a blast together!”
