For The Kids (and more…)


There are about two million children in the U.S. living in a household without a mom.

We are a 501 c (3) nonprofit dedicated to providing innovative, creative and fun support to the members of these households. Kids Without Moms (KWM) will provide a gender and age specific safe place online for them to meet with kids of similar circumstances across the country.  We provide these online groups free of charge and supervised by trained and qualified moderators to allow kids to share their experiences and to hear possible solutions from peers who have confronted similar situations in their lives.

The grief of losing a mom is a lifelong challenge, which is revisited with every new developmental stage in a child’s life.

We also provide services for dads and grandparents who also find themselves in the unexpected role of sole/primary caregiver. Please take a moment to explore the resources of the Man Cave, our Sometimes Mom program and the KWM Studios podcast schedule.

The Importance of Grit

I have come to the conclusion after two daughters and a son that the most important thing I can leave to my kids is character and grit. All the rest is of it (education, empathy, team leadership) pales in importance to character and grit. The world is changing faster...
