Welcome to the Greater Portland Maine Single Parents and Kids Group! Although many of us did not plan to become single parents, in many ways, becoming a single parent can be a happy accident that leads to a lot of great opportunities and has its own set of perks. In the spirit of continuing and expanding the community support for our area single parents, a friend and I decided that we wanted to start our own group to contribute to the mix. Our goal: To create a FUN and peaceful environment for single parents and their kids to hang out where we can form friendships and offer support. This is not a dating group. If you happen to meet someone here, we are happy for you. We just ask that you keep it out of our events so that those who are newly single or just need a break from relationships are not faced with them. This group is a shelter from the world of dating, the stigma of being a single parent, and any sort of drama. If you are a person who likes to do fun activities, join us! We are looking for members who are are supportive, kind, non-judgemental, tend to have a good sense of humor about difficulties in life, and have a generally positive attitude about single parenting. We will have some adult only events, but this group will focus more on childrens' activities and creating a safe and supportive environment for all of us. We would love for you to join our group help to create a fabulous network of friends with the common goal to enhance the well-being of single parents and their children.
