Agencies of Potter’s Gate Charities offer pro-active support services to disadvantaged women and mothers. This process strengthens families and reduces poverty, enriching society for generations to come.
In the United States and around the world, our agencies respond to the urgent needs of women and mothers. But there’s troubling news. An increase in the number of pregnant women and teens, homeless with nowhere to turn. Because of this, more working families wonder how they will feed their children.
Women account for a greater percentage of the global population in poverty. Statistically, there are twice as many female heads of household with no male present living in poverty than male heads of household with any females present.
Furthermore, even today, men earn more money than women for the same work.
