Helping Single Parents

You’re Not Alone

I knew single parents had it hard, but I didn’t realize how hard until I had my own kids. When I first became a parent I felt like I was drowning in responsibilities. As time progressed, I was able to cope, but only with the support of my amazing husband, my mom, my sister, and a ton of reliable and caring friends.  I have a whole network of people to help me, and it’s still difficult to balance childcare, a full-time job, time for my spouse, a household, and all the other obligations of parenthood.

So how in the world are all the moms who don’t have anyone making it work? How are they surviving?

I started looking into some statistics and discovered that 1 in 4 moms in the U.S. are single and of those single moms 3 out of 10 live in poverty. That’s almost a third of single moms!

How do single parents do it? No, let’s make this personal, how do you do it?

How do you take care of a home, provide for your child, work, pay the bills, and ever have a moment to breathe? I am in awe and admiration; and anyone going through this has my deepest respect. But I don’t want to stand at a distance and watch the struggle. I want to be a practical help in people’s lives. That’s why the partners of Babyfi TM are donating a percentage of profits to Non-Profit Organizations (NPO’s) that support single parents.

We are currently partnered with the following NPO’s that made stellar impressions on our team:

Helping Hands for Single Moms’ mission is assisting low income single mom families as the mother attains a post-secondary education, financial independence, and positive family legacy. Since 2002, HHSM has provided over $6 million in scholarships and supportive services.

Mommies Matter (founded by a mother) – is a charitable organization that provides group and one-on-one mentoring support, as well as housing, educational, employment, and financial assistance to brave, single, pregnant moms. Their mission is to empower single, pregnant women by “Doing Life Together”.
