SUPPORT SINGLE FAMILIES
Why Help Single Parents?
Regardless of the misconceptions and stereotypes that a lot of single parents face on daily basis. Single Parents are hard workers and determined parents wanting to provide nothing but the best for their children. It is a challenge trying to juggle everyday life, work, and family on a single parent's income. This is not just another hand out but an investment to single-parents wanting a better way of life for their children. Your support will provide daycare/latchkey scholarships, educational seminars, job-interviewing skills, housing retention, and more!
