Single Mothers Outreach
Single Mothers Outreach is proud to welcome Yorleni Sapp as the new Executive Director. Yorleni Sapp is passionate about work with meaning. She brings to the job a passion for serving individuals, believing all people have the right to live with dignity.
Yorleni grew up in a developing country (Costa Rica), which shaped her personal values and beliefs.

Growing up in a home with both parents deeply involved in non-profit work, she understands firsthand the impact and the rewarding experience of giving back, and affecting change.
