Single Moms support group to begin March 23

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Single Moms continues to be offered as a support group to women parenting children without a partner. The group, sponsored by the University of Iowa Women's Resource and Action Center (WRAC), is designed to discuss issues of parenting, living in Iowa City as single moms, and growing as women.

The next series of Single Moms meetings will begin Monday, March 23. Meetings are held each Monday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at WRAC, 130 North Madison Street, Iowa City. Child care is provided.

"We will support women in identifying and building on their strengths," says Angie Ward, support group facilitator. "Our goals are to end isolation and build community, because together, women can serve as resources to each other."

For more information, call the Women's Center at (319) 335-1486.
