Single parenting is a challenge. Parenting is hard, doing it alone is even harder. No one 'gets it' better than other single moms. 

My inspiration is to create a single mothers support group - where all participating single moms can come together and create a safe and supportive environment for all of us.

This idea stemmed from this thought - I am a single mom and I can definitely use more help and more support and better connections. Why not pull together other single moms in the area and create a community of single moms who are able and willing to give and receive help and support to/from other single moms. I am hoping that this community will be as much about "giving" as "receiving" help and support and our time and attention.

And of course - all of our events are kid's friendly. Because as a single mom there is nothing I appreciate more than child-friendly events. :)

This group is for active members only. If you're unable to actively participate in at least 1 meetup/event attendance per 2 months - I will request that you un-join the group and re-join when your time and schedule permits. As understanding and empathetic I want to be to all moms and everyone's schedules and circumstances - I cannot continue to run events and the group that has 30% participation rate. This isn't fair to me nor other moms - who want to be active and involved members of this group.

The [NEW] rules for joining this group:

You must have a profile picture that is actually YOU so we can see you're a real person and recognize you at events.

Thank you!
