Parents Without Partners provides single parents and their children with an opportunity for enhancing personal growth, self-confidence and sensitivity towards others by offering an environment for support friendship and the exchange of parenting techniques.
Preamble to the Constitution of Parents Without Partners, Inc.
AS CONSCIENTIOUS PARENTS, it is our primary endeavor to bring our children to a healthy maturity, with the full sense of being loved and accepted as persons and with the same prospects for adulthood as children who mature with their two parents together.
ADULTS AND CHILDREN in single parent families face unique and challenging circumstances. For children to mature and flourish in the absence of either parent requires an added measure of love, understanding, and sound guidance.
THE CHALLENGE OF PROVIDING for both ourselves and our children, a nurturing family life is often complicated by established patterns of community life. Consequently, a need for community resources to assist single parents in communicating and meeting their special circumstances exists.
THEREFORE, IN THE CONVICTION that we can achieve this end through working together, through, the exchange of ideas, and through the mutual under?standing, help and companionship which we find with one another, we have established "PARENTS WITHOUT PARTNERS, INC." to further our common welfare and the well-being of our children.
THE PROBLEMS ARE MANY: In bringing up our children alone, contending with all the adjustments and emotional conflicts arising out of widowhood and separation. PWP, Inc. is the only national and international organization that exists to study these problems. Through programs of discussions, professional speakers, study groups, publications, and social activities for families and adults, real help is provided to single parents in reshaping their lives.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE? To quote our Bylaws: "To be eligible for membership In PWP, a person must be the parent of one or more living sons or daughters, and be single by reason of death, divorce, separation, or never married, or other reasons which may be deemed acceptable by PWP, Inc. Custody of children is not a factor.
