The Single Parent/Homemaker Center, located at Hopkinsville Community College (Kentucky), provided immediate outreach and referral services to single parents and displaced homemakers between July 1989 and June 1990. The following services were offered to participants: personal and academic counseling, resume and interviewing workshops, referral services, workshops and seminars, occupational and interest testing, and employment referrals. The center also assisted qualified participants with training and independent living skills, individualized goals/life plans, exploration of nontraditional options, and alcohol/drug awareness workshops. The center served 123 women and 3 men. Plans were made to include a child-care facility for the following year so that single parents can participate in workshops. (The following attachments are included: a poem, "Memories of Jeffrey"; "Positive Thinker"; and letters from four participants.) (NLA)
