Mission Statement:

Singleton Moms™ is dedicated to nurturing single parents battling cancer and their minor children,
by meeting the practical day-to-day needs of the entire family while providing hope for tomorrow.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

To listen to the needs of the population Singleton Moms serves in the community and to annually evaluate programs accordingly. To bring awareness in our community to the Singleton Moms mission through strong program volunteer opportunities and one-on-one interaction with the families we serve. Expanding the purpose of our mission to strengthen the foundation of our Singleton Village.

Program History:

Michelle Singleton was a single mom of four children, who was just 32 at the time of her cancer diagnosis. Her childhood friends Jody Farley-Berens and Andy Royal McCandless sprang into action to help their friend, making meals, cleaning their house, paying a bill or two when they were able, and doing their best to “lighten the load” on Michelle and the kids.

As Jody and Andy were quick to learn, practical resources for single parents with cancer were non-existent. Although Michelle ultimately passed away at the age of 32, the one-of-a-kind model for Singleton Moms’ support services was born. In November 2006, Singleton™ Moms became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and continues to help parents like Michelle during their cancer treatment.

When we can offer single parents battling cancer some respite from household chores, relieve a bit of the overwhelming emotional stress and financial hardship, and give them more ability to recover and enjoy being with their children, that is when we know we are making a phenomenal day-to-day difference.

The community has embraced Singleton™ Moms, and we are grateful for all who continue to commit their time, lend their skills, apply their connections, and spread the word.

Our long- term goal is to be in a position where we never have any families languishing on our waiting list … to continue to expand the reach of our programs … and eventually, to build Singleton™ House, a soothing place where our parents and their families can fully recover from their battles.

Michelle Singleton’s story lives on in the hundreds of families in our community who have been touched with love and support through Singleton Moms!
