Raising a family on a single income is harder than ever before. Having access to a little extra each month can mean less stress and fewer difficult choices — like having to decide between putting food on the table and keeping the heat on during the winter.

Raising a family is a journey — one that changes both parents and kids. If you’re focused on making ends meet, it’s easy to overlook mental health. It’s no surprise that single parents often feel stressed, worn out or worse.

Testimonials

  • Sherry Ann Fogah

    I am a huge fan of One Parent as they were there for me in my LOWEST of low times... My children and I are truly grateful. One Parent has continued to assist me with knowledge for my future business and dreams, and has also kept us from being homeless even after coming to the hospital after having my newborn baby boy!

  • Sara Usman

    One Parent is an angel in disguise. A God sent for me and my kids. They have been there for me no matter what and have listened and helped as much as they can.

Sara and Sherry Ann are just a few of the single parents One Parent Foundation has helped.
Our support has given girls in the developing world access to education, and helped parents find solutions for their most pressing problems.

Do it for the kids

One Parent’s clients aren’t failures who couldn’t manage parenting on their own. The parents we work with come to us with a simple, noble goal — to make a better life for their kids. We believe that’s something that’s worthy of celebration, not judgment.

We offer support in a stigma- and shame-free environment. We understand that every single parent must make sacrifices. Through our programming, we aim to reduce your stress and provide the help you need to focus on being a present, caring parent.

More than a handout

we give families a hand up

We are a full-service partner to the families we serve. Connecting them with financial resources is a big part of this, but it’s not the only part. Ultimately, our goal is to help fill the gaps left by an absent parent with patience, caring and support.
