What we're about

Welcome to the LA Single Mamas & Papas (SMAPs) - a support and activity group for single parents living in Greater Metropolitan Los Angeles! You need to be a single parent to join this group.

This group has been around for almost a decade - wow! It started way back in December of 2006.

With the emotional, physical and financial toll that often accompanies divorce, separation or having a child on your own, it's often tough being a single parent while trying to maintain your sanity. We can help each other out! We can create new traditions! Its time for us to hold our heads high. We are modern independent families and instead of comparing ourselves to an unattainable ideal, we can reinvent what it means to live happily ever after!

This is a friendly group. It is not a dating meetup for single parents. Having said that, love can happen and love is good. Some couples have met through the group, gotten married and others are in long-term relationships. Yay!

This is also NOT an online-only meetup group. Members are expected to come to events and interact with other parents and their children.

If you're interested in volunteering and organizing events, please let me know and don't hesitate to reach out to me.

Hope to meet you soon!
