single parents support program

Are you a single parent? Do you often feel alone and unsupported? Are you looking for support, resources and meaningful connections with other single parents like yourself?

We are her for you. We understand that raising a child or managing a family on your own can be  a challenging experience due to many factors including financial and emotional struggles, lack of support, work-life imbalance and fatigue. We are here to support you and help you through those challenges. Our Single Parents Support Program is for all single mothers and fathers raising one or more children on their own, with limited to no support. You are welcome no matter your age, background, race or situation.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Our program is free and confidential, offering weekly sessions and activities for all single parents looking for support, to connect with resources, to meet with other single parents and share their stories and experiences in a friendly environment. Through our Single Parents Support Program, you will acquire new skills, receive emotional support and find solutions to the challenges you are facing. We help you to become better at parenting so you can raise responsible and healthy children.
