Single parent families are a prevalent trend among the African American community. Low socioeconomics and compromised maternal monitoring challenge the family structure of single African American families. These challenges produce negative psychosocial outcomes for African Americans. The purpose of this project was to design a one-year program and identify a funding source to write a grant proposal. The goal of the program was to provide psycho-educational groups to increase single African American mothers' knowledge of effective communication and conflict resolution. Additionally, the program was designed to provide emotional support. Long Beach Memorial Medical Center was selected as the host agency. The Annenberg Foundation was selected as a potential funding source. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
