Our Story

It takes a village to raise a child.

 

Single Family Living (SFL) was founded in the year 2013 in Michigan by a single parent, Jeri Hunley (Founder).  Ms. Hunley was faced with isolation and preconceived stereotypes from society due to her marital status.  As a single parent, Ms. Hunley struggled commuting to college, juggling two jobs or more, paying high daycare bills (health insurance, car note, etc.) living on ONE income for several years. As a concerned single parent for others like her similar situation. Ms. Hunley overcame these obstacles with help from her family. Ms. Hunley  met other single parents that did not have that support from families. Jeri Hunley dreamed one day in making a positive difference, family extension and created an outreach non-profit organization in the Tri-County Michigan area. 

 

Our founder understands the trials & tribulations; the temporary set-backs, overcoming-the-odds, delays, sacrifice, the enjoyments, and the accomplishments from being a single-parent. In 2013, Single Family Living (SFL) became a dream come true Jeri Hunley with becoming a Non-Profit Organization.

Our Mission

It takes a village to raise a child.

Single Family Living mission is to educate, inspire, and accelerate single families and children. We provide positive guidance and outreach to single families in the areas of financial budgeting, relationships, family care, counseling, life skills, stress management, and economic development. Our future goal is to expand our assistance beyond the Detroit Tri-County area to the entire state of Michigan. Currently, we are not able to do this due to lack of resources and volunteers. Like, many non-profit organizations majority of the money is through donations provided by our supporters. Supporters and members are the foundation of our organization. We appreciate all the support, whether big or small, you are willing to provide.

Why Help Children from a Single Parent Home?

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 tutoring against illiteracy, family counseling, mentorship, volunteer at schools, daycare/latchkey scholarships, educational seminars, job-interviewing skills, housing retention, and more!
