1Up Victoria: Mentoring and Resources for Single Moms

 

Save

 

Single parents in Victoria, British Columbia have a reliable place to get the resources and support they need.  1Up Victoria is a single parent resource centre that provides a well rounded list of resources that teach them how to fish.

Give a man a fish, he is hungry again in an hour.  If you teach him to fish, you do him a good turn" ~~ Anne Ritchie

One of the ongoing services that 1Up provides is mentoring opportunities to single moms, through their mentoring and moms program.  Single moms experience a wide range of stressors most of which are unique to parenting children alone.  By providing mentoring, 1Up gives these moms an opportunity to talk to someone who can provide a much needed respite from day to day.  Because sometimes all we need is a listening ear.

I'm a big fan of creating and maintaining connections.  It is what our SoloMoms! Talk Connect is all about.

Recently, I interviewed Sanni Rosebrock, coordinator for the Mom and Mentors program.
