The 4th Annual Chester County Single Mothers’ Conference will take place Saturday April 9th, at Henderson High School. The Chester County Community Collaborative is partnering with the Chester County Women’s Commission to host the event. This year’s theme is “SuperMom: Fact or Fantasy?” with drawings for door prizes, and the chance to be pampered. All single mothers are encouraged to attend.
From 8am to 3pm mothers can engage in a variety of free activities, including breakfast and lunch, childcare, a resource gallery to meet area service providers, panel discussions and clinics on relationships, finances, and legal matters. The conference provides mothers the chance to learn from other single mothers and their experiences. One lucky single mother will be recognized by the community and chosen by a committee of her peers.
Conference Co-chair Matrie Johnson, of PA Home of the Sparrow, believes the unique challenges that single mothers face warrant an event of this kind. According to Johnson, “Many of us have encountered phenomenal single women parenting their children to the best of their abilities with limited support and resources. This conference is designed to encourage, educate and empower single mothers regarding issues that affect their role as sole provider for the family.”
“We are so proud to be of service to our region’s single moms by offering free credit reports and other services at the Chester County Single Mothers’ Conference,” says Benchmark Federal Credit Union Marketing Director Rebecca Worthington. “As the only federal credit union serving Chester County exclusively, we are committed to enhancing the financial well-being of our neighbors.”
