Report on the Activities of the Single Parent Resource Center, 1975-1976.
Childcare Switchboard / Single Parent Resource Center, San Francisco, CA.
This report provides a model for the provision of social services to single parents. The activities the center provides include drop-in support groups, workshops on single parent issues, a single parent magazine, individual counseling and community outreach. The report briefly specifies the goals of the center and the rationale behind its activites. The center does not have the funding to carry out all the services it feels are needed by single parents. Requests from several community organizations for help in setting up their own single parent support groups have led to a different emphasis. A future goal may be for the center to concentrate its efforts on providing technical assistance, liaison and facilitator training for other groups, rather than attempting to provide all such services itself.
