SINGLE PARENT ASSOCIATION
OF NEWFOUNDLAND

WELCOME

The Single Parent Association of Newfoundland was founded in 1987. Our objective is to provide supports for single parents, enabling them to regain control over their lives for the empowerment of themselves and their children.

We recognize the ever increasing demands and pressures on this family unit. Through a number of practical programs and services, delivered with kindness, SPAN offers single parents and their families support and connectedness. 

PROGRAMS AND SERVICES

INFORMATION AND REFERRAL

SPAN's first and core service, it links the single parent to professionals and agencies with which SPAN has established a liaison for assistance, e.g. legal, medical, financial. 

CRISIS INTERVENTION

SPAN offers support, assistance and/or referral to professionals, where necessary.

Thank You RothLochston!

RothLochston Construction has given an incredible gift of $50000 to SPANL!

Thanks to their generousity we are able to register another 150+ single parent families for support this Christmas. This Christmas we will be helping over 300 such families. With heartfelt appreciation, thank you on behalf of all the single parent families that will benefit from this huge act of kindness. Wishing everyone at RothLochston a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year.

When a stranger cares enough to give, hope becomes part of the gift.

Christmas in Movember

For me, the Movember campaign has been just a hobby, something to flex my photoshop skills and have fun posting silly pictures of myself with a moustache, hopefully entertaining friends enough to donate some money. 

This time, the cause is different. While the Movember charity typically focuses on Men’s Health, I’ve decided that’s not a worthy enough cause any longer. As a father, bringing joy to my kids brings joy to me. I want to help other parents bring that joy to their kids. For single parents, especially so this year because of the pandemic and economic crisis, joy can be hard to find. So this year, I’m fundraising for the Single Parents Association of NL and their Christmas Support Project to put presents under the tree. 

I’m not a single parent, but I can certainly imagine how difficult it must be to raise kids without a partner!

This year’s theme will be “Better with a Moustache” 

Thank you for supporting local charities.
