Our original Organizer Tamara started this group when she googled 'Divorce Support in Calgary' and nothing came up except for "Calgary Single Parents Meetup Group". Surprised that no group existed when there seemed to be so many of us dealing with the same thing she started this group.
The purpose here is to support each other, share advice, share the things we've learned, make new friends and get out and learn how to live again through the pain and after the pain! The meetups are a great place for support, information, friendship and even a few laughs!
I encourage all of you that are members to attend the meetups. It is at these meetups where the healing occurs and the friendships develop. The seperation/divorce process is a very difficult one and I found this group to be an invaluable resource in my journey. Tamara wanted to encourage those without children to join as there is often more support for recently separated/divorced single parents than there is for recently separated/divorced individuals without children. However, if you have children and feel that you could contribute and get something out of this group, you are more than welcome to join!
