A single parent encounters many challenges and joys through out their daily lives as loving provider to their family. Parents With Partners(PWP), Chapter #247, Lake County, IL, solemn mission is to provide a family oriented social outlet for the single parent and their children.
Parents Without Partners, Inc. is an international not-for-profit and nonsectarian educational organization devoted to the interest and welfare of the single parent and their children.
We are not a charity. We understand the strength of the single parent! And we believe in empowering single parent families, so that they can lead healthy, happy and well adjusted lives.
I have been a member Lake County Chapter (247) of Parents Without Partners (PWP) for about four years and last year was elected president. I have a busy schedule just like every other single parent so I was reluctant to commit time to a role on the board of PWP, but have found that the more I get involved the more fun I have had. This is a non-profit organization so we don’t have a paid staff, we are just ordinary parents with all the ups and downs that go with it, looking for friendship, support and the opportunity to get out and have some fun. Our group is no more or less than the product of our individual contributions. If you are willing to invest some time and effort to be a part of our group, I think you will find it worth your while. We look forward to meeting you and your children.
