Single parents now outnumber married parents, according to the organizers of the recent Grand Rapids Single Parenting Expo. It happened on March 9 to celebrate National Single Parents Day at The Dock Ministry in Wyoming.
More than twenty different organizations were there, all involving single parenting to some degree. Organizations represented including, A Father's Walk, Divorce Care/DC4K, Greenpath (Financial Group), SMORE for women, Family Futures, Compassion This Way, Early Learning Neighborhood Collaborative/Baby Scholars, Bridging Brokenness, Young Lives, and The Life of a Single Mom.
The goal of the expo was to reach the single parent community and present them with many options for assistance.
