Helping Single-Parent Families in Cobb County, GA who are experiencing a financial crisis.

10 Women Of Hope’s Mission
  • OUR MISSION: To provide one-time financial support to stable, single-parent families in Cobb County who are experiencing a critical need.
  • OUR VISION: To impact a family’s life by providing financial support during a critical period that results in a positive outcome.

 

The 10 Women of Hope have established a network of reliable, community-based partners who make referrals to the organization. We work with the Cobb County and Marietta City school system as well as other designated local organizations who serve our target population. These partners act as an intermediary in that they submit the application on behalf of the applicants. Applicants cannot directly apply.

Scholarship Presentation

Congratulations to Scholarship Winner Bernadette Jones!

On Friday, April 23, 2021, Chattahoochee Technical School North Metro Campus in Acworth, Georgia held a “Meet and Greet” event where Penny
Warren and Patsy Bryan met with and awarded the 10 Women of HOPE scholarship to Bernadette Jones.

Bernadette was born in South Carolina, but spent most of her time in New Jersey where, as a single mom, she raised her son, who is now 25 years old. When Bernadette moved to Georgia, her daughter was only three years old. She is now 17 and getting ready to go to college. Bernadette knows what it is like to put all of your time, energy, and effort into raising two children as a single parent.

Bernadette earned her Associate Degree in RN at a community college in New Jersey. Realizing that she was unhappy after 18 years in nursing, Bernadette set her sights on Chattahoochee Tech and studied Cosmetology.

At 45 years young, Bernadette realized that she wanted to have her own business. She loves the southern hospitality and the people and feels her degree in Cosmetology will be a step in the right direction.

This scholarship will give her the opportunity to finish in the summer of 2021, with a degree in Cosmetology. After passing the licensing exam, Bernadette will officially be a Master Cosmetologist. This will allow her to practice things such as esthetics, permanent makeup, and hairstyling. The possibilities are many. Bernadette’s dream come true is to own a full-service spa.

From the 10 Women of HOPE, we wish you the very best Bernadette. Congratulations!
