People with cancer
Healthy meals provided to ensure that nutrition is a priority within the home and to promote time spent as a family over dinner. This program is also designed to free up money and time that would be spent shopping for food, and simplify cooking so that it makes it easy to prepare meals.
Several times a month we provide our Parents with nutritious, well balanced pre-prepared meals for the family. Meals are prepared by our volunteers at with the focus on nutrition and the needs of the parents and their children.
This program provides families with practical day-to-day household items offered to relieve the family budget and keep the home running smoothly. These are items everyone uses in their homes daily. It can get very expensive replenishing household necessities.
In partnership with many companies, churches, schools, clubs and organizations, Singleton Moms has Bare Necessities collection bins placed around the Valley. Through the help of generous community donors, the Bare Necessities program allows Singleton Parents to come by the Singleton Moms office and pick up much needed household necessities such as laundry detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, toothbrushes, etc.
The Bare Necessities program helps to reduce the financial burden that is associated with restocking practical household supplies.
We know that a big part of taking care of our Parents means making sure the kids have a network of support, too. We hold fun, kid-friendly events each quarter for our families. This gives the our kids a chance to meet other Singleton Kids going through the same challenges and lets them just hang out together and have fun.

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).SOURCE: Self-reported by organization
