Parenting Alone Charity Profile

Parenting Alone exists because American families are in crisis!

50% of children are raised in single parent homes
52% of single moms and their kids live below the poverty level
The standard of living for an average woman drops 45% after divorce
More than 1 million children are impacted by divorce each year
History:

Parenting Alone is based on 9 years proven experience in single parent ministry at Irving Bible Church (IBC). Bob Robinson, the founder and former executive director, launched and led that ministry as part of the pastoral staff, which grew to serve over 1000 people with over 240 volunteers. In 2008, Bob left the staff of IBC to launch Parenting Alone as a stand alone 501c3 charitable non-profit serving the entire Dallas metroplex community both in and out of church environments.

The Impact of Parenting Alone for the Community

Now: Single parents and their kids receive help, healing and hope to rebuild to their lives.

Future generations: Healthy parents and healthy kids can help reduce the cycle of divorce. Parenting Alone members active during the course of a year could result in 7,000 kids who would never experience the pain of divorce (four generations out).

Our Mission
To walk hand-in-hand with single parents and their kids. Our goal is to bring help, healing and hope to impact and encourage current and future generations towards healthy, vibrant families.

Our Plan
To offer a one-stop resource and relationship center for single parents that will help meet their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Free professional counseling, financial crisis coaching, budgeting, grief recovery, legal and career counseling are just some of the many services offered to the community. Family fun activities are also offered! (See Resources section)

Our Vision

Our vision is to perfect the Parenting Alone resource and relationship center at our initial location, and then launch multiple centers throughout the city, state and nation. Programs and processes are designed and documented to be replicated for future centers.
