What We Do

Our vision:  To create a brighter future for moms and their children.

Our mission: To mentor and prepare mothers of school-age children to achieve a college education and inspire them to be role models of academic, personal, and professional success for their children. 

ANSWER impacts economic mobility by providing scholarships, mentoring and professional development opportunities to adult women age 25 and older who are raising school-age children (grades Pre-Kindergarten – 12) and are seeking to earn a two-year nursing degree, a CPCC Health Sciences or IT degree or a four-year undergraduate degree in the field of their choice in the Mecklenburg and 11 surrounding counties of North & South Carolina.
