Single Parent Connection, Inc.

How We Came to Be...

Single Parent Connection Inc. (SPCI) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded by single parent Dionne Brown...that's me!

Please allow me to share a little about My Story, My Passion and My Purpose.

 

In 2002, I was blessed to become a first-time mother to a beautiful baby boy. This was absolutely the most exciting time of my life, but it also proved to be one of the most challenging times as well.  Shortly after giving birth, my son's father decided he no longer wanted to be a husband and father, so he left...that's right,

he took the Greyhound bus and didn't look back. I was completely devastated to say the least, but I knew I had to pull it together to be the source of strength and stability my son needed and deserved. My unexpected role as a single parent definitely came with challenges, but I used my struggles as motivation to start living in my purpose.

 

In 2016, I formed a small business called Living in Your Purpose, LLC. Through this company, I sold inspirational t-shirts and wristbands in order to provide emergency assistance for single parent families. While this endeavor provided a way to help families in need, I felt compelled to do SO MUCH MORE!

 

March 1, 2018, the nonprofit organization Single Parent Connection Inc. was established. Becoming the founder of this organization was definitely a dream come true for me.

 As a child raised by a single parent, and as the current head of a single parent household, my experience provides a unique perspective and personal connection to the families we serve.

 

Marion County (Indianapolis) is home to more than 43,000 single parent families. While we know we can't help everyone, our goal is to help at least 100 parents and children each year by providing

growth-based learning and family focused activities that help single parent families evolve and thrive.

Our unwavering dedication, along with support from our community, helps us provide real help, support and hope for the families we serve each year.

 

We may be a small organization, but we're determined to make a very BIG difference!
