This is a different kind of single parent support group. Single Parents Sharing Resources is a cooperative that will enable single parents to built networks to create a practical support system in Rockland/Bergen Counties and Western Westchester, to empower families socially, spiritually, and economically.
Single parents can be isolated and overworked. This group will enable members to team up with other local single parents to share childcare, share resources, and share rent/mortgages (homesharing). Meetups will enable parents to meet and connect with other like-minded single parents looking to create practical support systems.
Even finding one other parent to team up with to share meals with on a weekly basis can be a boon, reducing the workload and creating social connections and support (for example: dinner at your house Tuesdays, dinner at my house Wednesdays). In the past, meeting other local parent(s) whose schedule matched yours was difficult, but modern technology enables these connections.
Examples of support systems we're creating include but are not limited to:
-Childcare cooperatives: can be as simple as getting together with one other parent to take turns doing childcare. Can be as elaborate as large groups that keep track of child-care credits or home-school cooperatives.
-Resource sharing--clothing swaps, costume swaps, sharing items like lawn mowers, cooking tools, canning tools, et al.
-Home-sharing--connect with other parents looking to team up to provide daily practical support to each other and split the costs of home rentals or mortgages through home-sharing.
-Meal sharing--taking turns with other parents to cook and host meals. Great to not have to cook dinner every night, and creates social support system as well.
-Work parties: need to clean out the garage, move, make dinner, bake bread, build a play structure, build a chicken coop, etc, etc, etc? Host a work party, have fun, and get helping hands on the job.
Join us and explore the exciting possibilities for THRIVING when single parents team up!
