Single Parent Connections at Your Fingertips
Are you a single parent?
If you are not a single parent, do you know a single parent?
There are "almost two million Canadian children, that is 2 in 10 children that are living in a single-parent family. From 2006 to 2020 single families in Canada rose from 1.47 million to 1.78 million, a 21.09% increase." (Statcan.gc.ca, 2020).
In the US "74 million children under 18 years old, a little over 3 million are raised by their fathers and more than 15.7 million are growing up with their mothers." (Census.gov, 2020).

Secure & Instant Single Parent Connections
Upon signing up on the app, single parents fill out a form that requires an authorization to proceed with a vulnerable clearance background check. Without this clearance you are not able to set up your profile on the app. This feature is vital for security due to the personal information shared between the parents.
The Support feature will be added. It will include photo verification, location tracking and immediate emergency assistance. This is another essential safety feature added on top of the vulnerable clearance required upon signing on the app.
Once a single parent sets up her/his profile s/he connects in real time with other single parents based on her/his chosen fields of gender, age, hobbies, children's ages and hobbies and with personal and life services that s/he is seeking.
Personalized Single Parent Connections
The app connects single parents based on the results of potential connections. It allows the single parent to anonymously connect with another single parent by swiping right or pass by swiping left on them. If two users connect with each other, that results in a 'match', the 'single parent connection'. Once the connection is made the single parents can converse within the app.
SingleParentLife.app uses your location, interests and goals to connect you with other single parents in your area with similar interests and children within the same age bracket.
Innovating How Single Parents Connect

OUR STORY ~
Our founder Anca Dan, planned to attend a business networking event one evening and she had no one to look after her young child.
“I felt so alone. I couldn’t find childcare for my son for a couple of hours and I felt like I didn’t have support from anyone. I was so upset. I went in the shower and cried because that was the only place that I could cry where my young son would not see me upset. I thought to myself why isn’t there a website or app where people can instantly connect for child care support such as babysitting and other life services, and talk to someone about the challenges of being a single parent. I wanted to scream! In that moment I envisioned a place where single parents, like myself, could access others in the same situation and support each other in their time of need.”
“I’ve been a connector my entire life throughout school and in my career as a human resources professional, this platform connects people on a bigger scale. So, the research began, learning and researching, attending business groups and networking events to learn as much as possible and gather the best and most relevant information. I started writing everything down - what I wanted the platform to be, the services single parents would benefit from, what single parents authentically need for positive and healthy child rearing. The goal was to develop a platform that supports single parents with their unique lifestyle.”
We interviewed and validated and parents are so excited for the app! Single parents can't wait to connect with like-mined parents and locate the supports they need to raise their children in a mentally healthy family.
Single parents need to support one another. When one of us is not feeling well mentally or emotionally, we are not living our best lives for ourselves and our children. We should not be ashamed that we need support. Being vulnerable and honest with ourselves allows us to grow emotionally. Accepting that we need support is paramount to a healthy and positive family environment. Single parents can relate to each other because of their unique parenting lifestyle. So development started and the rest is history…..
We are so excited to help single parents internationally so that no parent ever feels alone in their parenting journey!
