Listen: Founder and Executive Director Tara Taylor
Single Mom Strong, Inc is a community of single mothers in support of one another. It is our mission to empower single mothers and their children through enrichment, encouragement and educational programs.... How do we do that? We currently offer 3 to 4 events per month: an empowerment workshop, (where we provide life skills, resources and other opportunities for betterment to the single moms of our community), a "Mother and Child Event" (where we come together and spend quality time with our children and each other) and a "Mom's Night Out", a much deserved break for our single moms. When the children are not involved in the activity, childcare is provided by our amazing, pre-screened childcare team.
Tara Taylor is the Founder and Executive Director of Single Mom Strong. Inspired by her experience raising her own daughter as a single mom and motivated by her strong conviction that anything can be accomplished with effort and determination, she has dedicated herself to developing and leading the organization.
Tara began her career in property management, quickly advancing to travel the country as the company's Training Coordinator, then eventually a Regional Manager, at the age of twenty-five. She managed every type of property from mobile home parks to large, new-construction retail centers. Seeking a new challenge, she obtained her Real Estate Broker’s license and opened her own property management company as a single mother with a young daughter and a mortgage. She succeeded because she had to, she had her daughter to provide for, and because she believed she could. Concurrently, she became co-owner of an alarm company, and went on to operate one of the largest security dealerships in the nation for several years. Tara served in several capacities on the Board of Directors for the Rental Housing Association and went on to advise a major security alarm monitoring company through her position on their Dealer Council. After a prosperous 20-year career, she switched gears, listened to her heart and found her purpose, in Single Mom Strong and her work as a life coach.
