Parents without Partners
http://www.parentswithoutpartners.org/
This organization provides single parents and their children with an opportunity for enhancing personal growth, self-confidence, and sensitivity towards others by offering an environment for support, friendship, and the exchange of parenting techniques. Founded by two single parents, it is now the largest international, nonprofit membership organization devoted to the welfare and interests of single parents and their children. Single parents may join one of 400+ chapters; they may be male or female, custodial or noncustodial, separated, divorced, widowed, or never-married. Distinct from chapter membership, the affiliate membership is offered to any interested person or business, and the member-at-large membership is offered to any qualified individual.
