Our group is a bunch of single parents, both moms and dads, who get together and do BOTH kid-outings together, and sometimes adult nights, where we get a babysitter and hang out as adults.   We want to both get out there with our kids and meet fellow parents experiencing the challenges (and joys) of solo-parenting.

It is not intended to be a "dating" group -- although, of course, if that happens it's great -- it's more a way for us to bond about the unique experience of raising children solo.  I just don't want anyone to feel like they need to get all dolled up for our meet-ups!

Dads are particularly welcome!  Our group has regular dads and I think it's more gender balanced than many other single parent groups.   But our moms do out-number our dads, so dads -- step up and join us!

Everyone really is very friendly and welcoming and it's become a cool little group.  We have about 15 of us who have become a "core" group of regulars, and we always have at least a few new people every time. Maybe it comes with single parenting, but our parents are also not flakes at all -- people actually show up. We have even gone camping and skiing together...It's really a great group!

I've narrowed it to Northeast LA so we're relatively close to each other, but anyone of course is welcome to join.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
