A new report from a Boston non-profit organization shows that three out of four single moms don’t make enough money to raise their kids and make ends meet.

The study says that a single parent with one school aged child and one preschooler needs at least $65,880 a year to pay for food, housing, transportation, child care, healthcare, and other day to day expenses.

The report says that women who make less than this figure will have a difficult time being self sufficient and will need some sort of public assistance.

The report suggests that the cost between what people make and what it costs people to support themselves is growing wider. It’s something that also affects two parent families…40% don’t make enough money to pay the bills.
