Single Parent Provision (SPP) is a non-profit organization working to strengthen the lives of single parents and their families in central Iowa. Teahl Bader, founder, has a big heart for single parents, as she is a single mother and was raised by a single father. She led a single mom's ministry at a local church for several years, and through this ministry, God planted a seed and provided a vision for her to help others in similar circumstances.
Each member of the Single Parent Provision board
is a current single parent, former single parent, or was raised in a
single parent home. We believe this dynamic helps position us to hit the
mark when making decisions about valuable programs, services and events for single parent families.
To glorify God by partnering with single parents to help strengthen their lives and the lives of their families.
We will honor and glorify God through the provision of needed support and growth opportunities while fostering relationships with single parents and their families in central Iowa. Parents will come to know caring people who have their interests in mind, are eager to walk beside them and help their family thrive.
Our mission and vision will be carried out through the provision of programs that concentrate on our three focus areas of support, growth, and relationships. Break Time, business discounts and our assistance program will provide support to single parents and their families. While classes and workshops will offer growth and learning opportunities, networks and mentors will provide opportunities for single parents and their families to build lasting relationships and connections with others.
