SPAN is thankful to this branch of government for an annual grant that enables us to carry on the work of the Association!

The Single Parent Employment Support Program (SESP) which was funded initially as a Pilot Project in 1998 is an ongoing program with the Department of Advanced Education and Skills. Since it’s beginning SESP has helped approximately 1400 single parents re-enter the work force finding gainful employment. This is a 90% success rate of single parents that have registered for the course and were successful in obtaining employment.
