Why We Do What We Do
Since 2009, Single Parent Advocate has been committed to educating, equipping, and empowering Single Parent Families with resource information, practical assistance, emotional encouragement, and social networking such that those who need help get help – and those who want to help, can.
Single Parent Advocate, is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization based in North Texas that provides resource connections, growth-based training, and support for single parent families. Additionally Single Parent Advocate corresponds with families from all over the United States and consults other non-profits, churches, and businesses on how to build a program for success in serving and engaging single parents within their respective organizations.
1 in 4 children in the US are growing up in a single parent home. Single mothers and fathers have much higher likelihood to live in poverty, as they face incredible work/life balance issues. Single Parent Families have unique needs and issues constantly affecting their inability to overcome ruin. The emotional and financial toll on most of these families is actually helping to create an even younger population of single parents who are just children themselves. We work to help break this cycle & increase these families’ success.
It is our commitment to continue advocating, training families, and aligning with communities and professionals on behalf of single parents and their children in a collaborative fashion alongside other non-profits and faith based, private and public sector communities, organizations and associations.
