Women with Children Program
The Women with Children Program invites you to participate in our mission of empowering single mothers through educational achievement and personal growth, working toward future professional success only a college degree can provide.
Through the gift of free housing, financial assistance, access to quality child care and an array of social, academic and family enrichment programming, Women with Children provides a comprehensive response to the needs of our families. Our students arrive ready to accept the challenge, demonstrate the courage to dedicate themselves to their educational goals, and ultimately, depart from Misericordia University a college graduate, ready to make an impact as a valiant woman, a Mulier Fortis!
Being a part of the Women with Children Program, I have the support necessary to be a full-time college student as well as a full-time mom. This is an amazing opportunity for any potential student mother to take as their first step on their journey to success.
