Read reflections from a Single Parent Family Program Client

Single Parent Family Program

The Single Parent Family Program is a long-term residential program that empowers clients to achieve goals and reach self-sufficiency.  It is not an emergency shelter and only accepts clients through an application, interview and assessment process.  If you are in immediate need of shelter, we are happy to share with you other organizations you may want to contact.

Our offices are open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed weekends.  We will make every effort to return calls and emails on the first business day after your inquiry.  At times, our locations are full and include a wait list.  If this is the case, the Coordinator will notify you of the approximate wait time and you may elect to apply and be placed on the wait list, or apply elsewhere should your needs be more immediate.

 

Our Residential Single Parent Programs in Texas offer:

  • Employment assistance including educational and vocational help and support choosing a future career
  • Referrals for Individual and group counseling
  • Case management services
  • Assistance with obtaining food stamps and health insurance
  • Money management and life skills training
  • Parenting, wellness and nutrition classes

We also welcome single mothers who live in the community and who do not need residential services. We invite you to check out our services; there might be aspects of the program that fit your needs. “Graduates” of the Single Parent Family Program may rely on support from Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services’ Child and Family Program. Please help us give more struggling mothers a chance to raise their children in a safe, nurturing environment where they can all succeed.
