Where can a single parent turn for help? Start with your family. Your parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters, and aunts and uncles may be able to help you.
Local churches, synagogues and mosques also may be able to help. Ask them about special groups for single parents.
If you attend school, talk to your school counselor. He or she may be able to help you find resources for parents.
Local public schools or community service groups often have free parenting classes.
There are a number of nonprofit groups that help single parents. Some may have chapters in your area. To find them, look in the Yellow Pages of your telephone book. Look under “Support Groups.” The groups may also be listed under “Community Services” or a similar title at the front of the telephone book.
