In the heart of North Texas, Single Parent Advocate stands as a beacon of unwavering support for those who brave the challenges of single parenthood. As we approach North Texas Giving Day, in partnership with the Communities Foundation of Texas, the call for solidarity grows stronger. We envision a community where single parents are empowered, not hindered, by their journey. Your support on this pivotal day will fuel our mission to provide comprehensive resources, mentorship, and a nurturing network that single parents can lean on. Together, we can transform struggles into successes, uncertainty into confidence, and isolation into a sense of belonging. Join us on North Texas Giving Day to champion a cause that impacts not just families, but the very fabric of our society. Every contribution you make reverberates through households, and every step you take toward empowerment resonates for generations to come.
Stand with Single Parent Advocate, stand with North Texas, and stand for a future where no single parent walks alone. Locally over 250 families (including 500 children and teens) are supported.
The organization hosts social functions and provides emotional and practical support during key holidays and seasons of the year including, but not limited to
Mother’s Day Dinner Celebration,
Father’s Day Fun Day,
Back-To-School Supply Drive & Distribution,

The organization is working on capacity building as well as seeking sponsorships for these outreaches, our annual Life Changer Golf Classic in March/April as well as our upcoming Murder Mystery Theatre Gala on October 14, 2023 at the Lewisville Grand Theatre.
