Parents Without Partners

Once again, my mom provided me with a great resource for single parents.

Parents Without Partners was founded in 1957 by two single parents.

Parents Without Partners provides single parents and their children with an opportunity for enhancing personal growth, self-confidence and sensitivity towards others by offering an environment for support, friendship and the exchange of parenting techniques. For the minor children of single parents, it offers them the opportunity to meet peers living within the same family structure and thriving.

Parents Without Partners, Inc. is now the largest international, nonprofit membership organization devoted to the welfare and interests of single parents and their children. Single parents may join one of the many chapter around the US and Canada; they may be male or female, custodial or non-custodial, separated, divorced, widowed or never married. Search for a chapter in your area.

They also introduced me to many online resources for single parents:

Check out the articles for single parents as well, with subjects like relationships, emotions, travel, dealing with divorce, and blended families.
