Single parent households in the Dayton area face greater hardships than families that consist of two parents. Research suggests that single parent families are presented with bigger problems, such asfinancial constraints and lower educational achievement among their children. Drawing on Facing Project Narratives and social science literature, this poster will highlight how single parent families face more challenges providing for their children and themselves. The subequent challenges children of these families face will also be discussed. Finally, I will identify current programs designed to assist single parents as well as how other programs might also be effective.
