Dallas Front Steps Project- Single Mother Relief

We are creating a fund for local single mothers who are struggling with the current economic impact as a result of COVID-19. Single mothers face an extreme burden during quarantine due to loss of child care and inability to attend work or effectively work from home.

Those that apply for funding will be awarded money within a few days of their application depending on the state of our funds. The more funding we receive, the more money we can provide to more people. 

We've created a short survey to help us prioritize those in our community most at-risk and in need. All information shared remains confidential. 

To apply please fill out this survey. 

Please consider donating or sharing if you are unable to give at this time. 

We will be withdrawing funds and sending digital increments of $200 to mothers who have filled out the grant applications; helping as many as our resources allow.  

If you have non-monetary resources to offer please fill out this form:

My name is Julia Newman and I am an NYC-based photographer who just moved with our family to Dallas in early March. Never would I have thought that this is how we would become involved in the local community but times are strange indeed. As a mother myself, I understand the importance of a village and hope this fundraising effort will provide some relief to single moms who have been physically cut off from their village. These funds will go straight to mothers who have applied for them through the application and delivered digitally in $200 increments. The funding will help with the immediate financial needs of mothers who have lost income because of COVID-19.
