Story

During the 2022 holiday season, #DoneForDiDi and a team of leading community organizers across the US are raising at least $100,000 to help single Black moms retain or obtain housing.

Rent for Moms will help over 50 moms pay rent in Boston (MA), Binghamton (NY), Detroit (MI), Fort Lee (NJ), Oklahoma City (OK), Portland (OR), Richmond (VA), Sacramento (CA), Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth (TX) & Washington, DC.


Invest in Black joy this Giving Tuesday, and make it your tradition. Big things happen when we all chip in a dollar or two.

Though white and non-Black folks are often eager to give money around the holidays, this radical campaign moves beyond saviorism and challenges the systemic issues that maintain the need for feel-good campaigns like toys drives and giving trees, all the way back to their sources.

  • Decades of discrimination in employment, housing, lending, and the justice system have left Black moms struggling to make ends meet.
  • 4 out of 10 people who are unhoused in the US are Black. The average family without housing in the US is a single parent household headed by an African-American woman. It’s a huge disparity, especially when you consider that the African-American population only represents 13% of the total US population. 
  • In Boston, rent consumes “about 71% of income in Black neighborhoods but just 35% in White communities,” according to a Forbes study. The Boston Globe’s Spotlight Series found that the median net worth for a Black household in Boston is $8 compared to $247,000 for a white household.
  • Black women are typically paid only 63c for every $1 paid to white men, regardless of industry.


The Solution

Your donation to Rent for Moms can help a family have a safe and happy holiday season.

When Black moms are supported, Black communities are supported. Black women are the driving force in keeping generations of families and neighborhoods together. When housing is not a stressor, people are able to secure better jobs and build better family and community connections.

We’re inviting individuals, community groups, and businesses to make a pledge to raise funds for Rent for Moms. Whether it’s $250, $500, $1000 or more. We’ve got toolkits and resources to help you reach that goal. You won’t be doing it alone and you’ll be helping secure housing for over 50 families this holiday season.” @TheDiDiDelgado

Working together with other Black organizers, in 2020 we were able to create and move resources in a big way, raising $37,420. This holiday season, we need you to show up to reach our ambitious goal of raising $100,000 by 25 December 2022!
