Who Are We?

Wendy E. Shaia, EdD, MSW

I raised my four children alone for more than ten years. Every time someone told me how wonderful my kids were, it occurred to me that the expectation existed that they would be less successful.


I have started this community to support single parents raising black and brown children, who are receiving the message that their children will be troubled. We are here to say that we are raising kids alone successfully!
