Business supporting single mothers, Hearts in Faith, celebrates ribbon cutting

O’FALLON – The O’Fallon-Shiloh Chamber of Commerce joined Hearts in Faith as they celebrated their new location. The business is located at 7 Eagle Center, O’Fallon. The business celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on September 21st.        

Hearts in Faith is excited to offer programs and activities that empower single mothers and youth here in the O’Fallon area.  This organization aims to create a community of support based on love and faith. Current programs cater to the development of healthy relationships for single mothers aka Sweet Hearts, teen moms, as well as a Youth Violence Prevention Program called Heart Beats, specifically for youth who experience violence as either a victim, witness, or perpetrator. A program designed to empower single fathers, Strong Hearts, will be implemented in the upcoming year.  

Hearts in Faith was founded by Leslie Davis, a Licensed Professional Counselor and a self-professed single mother. She knows the single mother journey and finds fulfillment in encouraging other Sweet Hearts on their journey of empowerment. The Board of Directors are also either single mothers or were raised by single mothers themselves.  Each woman on this dynamic team has a story to tell and more importantly the ability to recognize and support the needs of single mothers and youth in the community.
