Mother’s Day ended yesterday for single moms.

Who will honor these mothers without a supportive spouse, without a dad, who will bow to them, make them breakfast, shower them with affection and clean the house?

Mother’s Day is widely celebrated as a special day to honor all mothers and motherhood. The mothers who raised us, and all the mothers who sacrificed for their children are honored.

In Yucca Valley, female households-no husbands take up 12.7 of all households. The largest numbers of female households are from 35 to 76 years of age.

Although 29 Palms has 74% percent of people live in a husband and wife family — there is a very large population of single moms in the city and surrounding unincorporated areas.

The largest population demographic breakdown in 29 Palms are Millennials (22-37 years old). In Yucca Valley they are estimated at 15% of the population. Source

And, or course Mother’s Day extends to the mothers caught up in our country’s mass incarceration crisis, and the mothers separated from their kids at the border.

Sources indicate that women are the fastest growing incarcerated population in the U.S.

Mother’s Day is the real deal for all mothers everywhere.
