Kaleo has been very instrumental to my healing through a very difficult life event - my separation and divorce. So glad I found this sisterhood.

If this is a new step forward for you on your journey, I highly recommend taking this course. Through different exercises, you will learn how to form new habits, hold yourself accountable to new changes and become aware of past actions through reflection and exploring your relationship to money. Be brave, this is the next step for you on your journey. It is time for you to move forward. If this is not a new ideal for you on this journey, let this be a good reflection piece to shine a light in your corners. How can you elevate yourself further through this course, how can you fine tweak your actions? To top it all off, the experience to be with other Mamas is comforting knowing that we are not alone, and sitting in each others space helps empower us. Thank you Kaleo for this opportunity.

I had no idea really what to expect when I signed up for the Single Moms Resource program, only that I wanted to connect with other single Mamas. I’m blown away with the resources that were made available, the lessons I learned, the skills I attained, the connections I made, and for truly being seen as supported as a Single Mom. I’m blessed and truly grateful for Kaleo Collective for what it brought, and continues to bring into my life and ripples out to my children.

Kaleo Collective is an incredibly supportive, inclusive, generous and resourceful charity for single mothers and their children. Having had the experience of being a single mother herself, Layna Haley truly appreciates and understands the challenges that many single mothers face in our community. Layna's heart and passion for serving women shines through every program, fundraiser and initiative she leads through her charity.As the Founder and Executive Director of The Grief and Trauma Healing Centre, we are humbled and honoured to partner with Kaleo Collective to provide low-cost and pro bono individual and group counselling services to Kaleo's membership. These women and their children are absolutely incredible and it is our privilege to support them in healing from the losses they have experienced throughout their journey.Thank you Layna and Kaleo for being a beacon of light, love and hope for single mothers and our community at large. We appreciate and acknowledge the beautiful and impactful work you do, helping one mother at a time.Sincerely,Ashley Mielke
I was brought up with the message to look after yourself because nobody else will. So when I became a single mom in a foreign country, I assumed I was on my own again. Until faith made my path cross with Layna and Kaleo. I didn’t need help financially, I didn’t need help raising my daughter and I thought I didn’t need support. I just wanted to help the charity because I realized many single moms do need this support. But in connecting with Layna, I realized how valuable Kaleo and all these moms are. I have found friends and have made connections I would have never thought possible. I feel so much stronger and have so much support now that I have found this group, it is truly a blessing.Kaleo to me, is not a charity, it is a community. A support system where every mom can get whatever they need, without judgement and with an abundance of love. A safe haven for kids to connect and for moms to feel understood. ❤️

Where do I even begin? Kaleo deserves more than just five stars. Kaleo has created such an amazing support system for single moms. It’s a support system that provides you the tools, resources and confidence to keep you going when you sometimes feel you can’t. Layna has a heart of gold and truly the most loving, kind, generous and over all amazing person I’ve ever met. She makes every single person feel important, empowered and loved. I’ve gained some amazing friends and support systems through Kaleo and like I said, there aren’t enough stars to show how amazing Kaleo really is.

Kaleo is a place I can call home. As a single mom Kaleo has given me a tribe of women who love deeply and share honestly.

How do I write about Kaleo Collective without tears?As a solo-single Mama I have a lot of weight on my shoulders. And although I have a great support system, the network and connections I’ve gained through the Kaleo Family are invaluable.Kaleo is a community where Mamas can come together and feel fully accepted without judgement, bond though shared experiences and share knowledge and resources.In turn, we’re enabling each other, ourselves and our children.The kids not only see their Mamas learning and gaining self-efficiency and self-esteem, they also see us being powerfully vulnerable as we lean on each other for support. They are learning through the most powerful means: the example of their Mamas and adult loved-ones. They also have the opportunity to feel really special through events and activities, and to make their Mamas feel special by giving back to them by participating in Little Santas and Love Your Mama.I am so happy to see Kaleo growing and having the ability to offer more and different programs, and to be able to support more Mamas as it grows.I highly recommend joining the family as a Mama, a volunteer or a donor!Thank you Layna for sharing your heart, your ENTHUSIASM, and your family with us. And Happy 24th Austin! 🥳

Kaleo Collective is the best community for single mamas. I am so glad I have found a place where I have found so many like minded mamas, support and SO many resources to make me an even better mama so my kids can thrive! The founder Layna, is truly a gem. She is what I like to call the matriarch of mamas and has proven time and time again that we are not alone. If you are a mama and you feel alone, connect with Kaleo- you won’t regret it!

As a single mom, life can be scary. Add anxiety and recovering from an abusive situation and you can feel very very alone. I had a phone call with Layna from Kaleo before my first in person meeting with the support group and I already had a good feeling about this amazing group of women. Kaleo has helped me grow in more ways than I ever could have imagined or dreamed of. I have found my love for myself, my confidence and truly a place to belong. From weekly meet ups for my mental health to courses on vision planning, budgeting and so much more I cannot thank Layna and the whole Kaleo family for truly giving me my life back!

This is an organization that I'm honoured to serve and support. The work that Layna and her team at Kaleo do to bring women together, to foster confidence and belief in themselves and to help them to build and refine skills that make life better for them and their kids is heartwarming. Kaleo targets an important gap missed by governments and agencies - and the women who participate appreciate the opportunity to journey collectively.I'll conclude by acknowledging that I'm not a mom, or a single mom - but I was raised by one. I also married one. 😉

This is a MUST for every woman who finds herself single with children. The community is engaging and caring and the training offered is second to none. From nutrition, getting creative with your kids to solid self care this is one stop shopping. Founder Layna Haley, herself a single mom at 16, is the real deal and seeks out professional help for the woman in this group!
