To empower single parents to lead successful families and build strong communities.
The ReSTART (Re Supporting, Teaching And Reaching Together) program has 2 active groups with 2 more scheduled to begin in the Fall. Our goal is to add 1 new group per quarter.
We just completed our 9th annual Queen For A Day event which hosted many single moms, grandmothers, adoptive moms, etc. here in the Oklahoma City metro. We also hosted our first Queen For A Day event close to Tulsa, OK.
The Mothers and Sons Conference in June gave moms an opportunity to learn how to give their love roots. Boys interact with positive male role models at a local camp. As a direct result of this event, we are starting a monthly mentoring program for boys of single moms.
Our goal at SPSN is to provide a holistic approach to the challenges that single parents need to successfully raise their children. We believe that the first approach is the wholeness and the health of the parent or care giver so that they can then pour into the lives of their children. There is nothing more futile than trying to “fix” a child, per se, and then sending them back into a vulnerable, toxic and sometimes hostile environment. We choose to give parents to tools to help them find their way so that they can help their children find theirs.
Our dream far surpasses educational tools, support groups and scholarships and we would like to have access to legal help, auto clinics, emergency rescue teams, housing and so much more available for the parents.
We want to work on another project called “The Edge” which is simply a way to tap into the gifting of many of the children of single parent families (usually termed as “at risk”) and opening up the windows of Science, Math, Technology, Robotics and other cutting edge educational opportunities at an early age. The objective would be to give them an advantage as they grow into successful young men and women.
