Single Parents

The single parents group is for individuals (male and female) who live with and are raising a child or children without a spouse. Reasons for becoming a single parenting could include divorce, break-up, abandonment, death of the other parent. This community group's vision is to re-present Christian SIngle Parents as vibrant individuals who are raising well-balanced and successful children, while working at being the best version of themselves.
