Both single mothers and mothers with disabilities are overrepresented among the U.S. population living in poverty. Single mothers with disabilities face special challenges raising children in low-income households. To develop a better understanding of their experience, we conducted 6 focus groups with a total of 36 single mothers with disabilities who are receiving Supplemental Social Security benefits. Using coding methods appropriate for qualitative data, we analyze themes related to the dynamic nature of challenges these mothers face as their children age. Findings show that none of these women identify their disability as a specific challenge. All participants agree increased advocacy services are critical to helping them to successfully raise their children. Recommendations for future research and practice implications are discussed.
