My mom…my inspiration.


Dr. Ray Fleming Dinneen with her mentor, her mother Dr. Pat Fleming.

“I’ve always been inspired by my mom’s ability to see the true potential in everyone—especially those having the hardest time in life. It is part of what led me to create a program for single mothers 30 years ago and give struggling families an opportunity to change their lives.

This Mother’s Day, you can help us celebrate all the moms who have boldly taken the Climb journey—and make it possible for more families to rise out of poverty.”

— Dr. Ray Fleming Dinneen, Climb Founder & Executive Director
