Almost half of New York City’s single parent families live in poverty. For these families, the holidays can be a particularly challenging time as they struggle to find shelter, pay for food and clothe their children.
Serving over 2,000 individuals annually, The Single Parent Resource Center, Inc. is the only comprehensive nonprofit agency devoted solely to providing programs for New York City’s single parents and their families. During the holidays, we are particularly committed to helping our families cope with the many challenges that they face, including homelessness, poverty, and the struggle to reunite with their children after incarceration or separation due to substance abuse.
We need your support now more than ever. Please send whatever amount you can, so that we will be able to offer support and joy to our families during this time of year, and throughout the year. We thank you for your continued generosity.
With genuine gratitude,
Deane Allen Gilliam, President, SPRC Board of Directors
Amber-Noelle Anthony, Calandra Brown, Elizabeth Cummins, Alison Fraser, Alan Fuchsberg, Trudy Gagne, Christine Govan, Carl Marucci, Jim McDonald, Russ Schulman, Betsey Steeger, SPRC Board of Directors
