TSSP Housing

Housing Single Parents
While They Pursue Their Dreams

For single parents, graduating from college can be an uphill battle. But it’s also a goal worth pursuing — as long as they have the support they need to help them while they attend school.

The Stepping Stone Pathways can make those dreams a reality.

The difference maker

Helping Single Parents
Get Through College

Being able to take classes while supporting one’s family feels almost impossible for many moms and dads. When you’re on your own, it can be downright overwhelming, especially when it comes to paying the rent in today’s skyrocketing housing market.

TSSP Housing actively works to provide homes for hardworking single parents to live in while they’re attending college. Rent is typically the most costly and challenging expense to pay for, so our work can make all the difference in helping students finish school and start fulfilling careers.

Our mission can be summed up with three values: economic security, community, and achievement. We aim to help single parents prepare for their future by making it more financially possible for them to accomplish their goals for higher education
