The American Association of Single Parents, Inc. takes a holistic approach to support the custodial single parent through Charitable, Social, and Educational programs.

​​Message from our Founder:  


AASP is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to the success of the custodial single parent and their children! The US Census Bureau reports  that there are over 14 million single parents raising over 22 million children.  Many of these families live under challenging circumstances. Through our programs and services, AASP hopes to make a difference in the single parent's journey of parenting.


We seek to build corporate and community partnerships, along with a host of volunteers to make our mission possible. We believe that it truly takes a village to raise a child and build better communities.  If you would like to partner with us, contact us at 708-481-5410.

Why our mission is important...

"We believe that it truly takes a village to raise a child and build better communities."

Our organization recognizes that the increase of single parent households impact society in several ways. To name a few...

  • Unmarried mothers and children from single parent homes are likely to be in poverty.
  • Children of single parents are more likely to engage in high-risk relationships and behaviors at an earlier age. 
  • Children of single parent households are more likely to drop out of high school.


AASP is dedicated to addressing the needs of this growing community.
