Belief

Our belief is that children are better off in stable environments.  Being in a single-parent family does not automatically make the environment unstable.  However, single-parent families are vulnerable to situations that can create instability in the lives of their children.

Statistics show that children are better off in various measured markers in two-parent homes.  Statistics also show that children fare no better in measured markers when living in a family with a parent and step-parent and that the rate of divorce increases with each subsequent marriage.  When combining these statistical facts we can see that remarriage or cohabiting living conditions provide a high risk of instability for the children.

We believe the children of single parents are better off when their family has access to support systems which enable the single parent to provide a stable environment without the financial pressure or isolation that can lead to the premature development of new romantic relationships.

About

We've all heard the saying, “life is what you make it". This implies that the individual's life experiences are based on the consequences of the choices made as an individual. While this is true, there are a plethora of decisions made outside of the individual's control that affects the individual's life. We do have the right to choose how we respond to outside pressures but for many people, especially low-income single parents, the choices are limited by a lack of resources.

Life isn't what you make it, life is what we make it together

As the founder of the SP Community, I understand all too well about how lack of resources can influence decision making. This is why, once I had the opportunity, I went to college and earned a Bachelor of Science in Sociology degree with Cum Laude academic honors. I focused many of my electives on classes related to creating and directing a nonprofit organization. Now I'm ready to put those skills to work in creating the organization I have dreamed of for the past 20 plus years.
