Surviving Single Parenthood is a private Facebook group created by Ronald Hall, a single parent of three children. Hall founded the group nine years ago, and since its creation it has garnered over 105,000 members.
The group has created a safe-haven of love and support for single parents seeking advice on how to raise their children. Aside from advice and positive encouragement, the group also provides a yearly Secret Santa Drive to ensure that parents struggling to buy their children gifts will be able to put something under the tree.
Jen Dulski, the head of groups and communities at Facebook notes: “When you have a community with this many people who can offer you support, it really helps people feel connected and a sense of belonging.”
