INFORMATION AND REFERRAL

SPAN's first and core service, it links the single parent to professionals and agencies with which SPAN has established a liaison for assistance, e.g. legal, medical, financial. 

CRISIS INTERVENTION

SPAN offers support, assistance and/or referral to professionals, where necessary.

FOOD AND CLOTHING DISTRIBUTION OUTLET

Another practical help to single parent families - SPAN offers gently used clothing free of charge to any in need; food hampers are available for single parent families. We receive ongoing support from Community Food Sharing with whom we are affiliated. Many retail stores also donate new clothing from older stock. In addition to this, many groups and individuals support the Outlet with donations of food, clothing, toys, books and small household items. 

  • WHO CAN USE THIS SERVICE?
    Food hampers are available to single parent families only; clothing is given to any in need.

    To register for food hampers only, single parents must present MCP cards for each family member, as well as some proof of single parent status e.g. drug card, child tax benefit summary, income tax assessment or custody papers.

    The Outlet is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 10:00 am - 1 pm, and 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm. (NOTE: Hamper requests must be made by 12:30 pm in the morning and by 2:45 pm in the afternoon.)

SINGLE PARENT EMPLOYMENT SUPPORT PROGRAM

Early in 1998, SPAN entered into a partnership with the Provincial Department of Advanced Education and Skills (formerly Department of Social Services, HRLE) to institute a program to assist single parents in receipt of social assistance to reenter the workforce.  Participants take part in 5 weeks of half day classes which cover job search skills and personal competencies needed when working.  The earned income supplement, assistance in job search, recognition of the real costs of working, combined with the sensitive supports provided by SPAN have enabled over 1500 single parents to obtain employment. Approximately 32% of clients, by their third year, no longer need any income support.

  • WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
    Participants are single parents on income support
  • - PLEASE NOTE: We cannot accept clients who are currently receiving EI payments.
  • WHEN DO CLASSES START?
    The program runs 4 groups per year. Start dates are mid-September,late October, mid-February, and early-May.

SESP is available is to single parents in St. John's and surrounding areas & at our Carbonear office for single parents in the Conception Bay North area.

 

PEER SUPPORT

Peer support is given in a variety of ways - group meetings, by personal appointment, telephone, or email.  Please contact our general office at 738-3401 for more information.

COOKBOOK

SPAN published a low-cost, heart-healthy, nutritiously sound cookbook entitled "Eat To Your Heart's Content" in 1992. Margaret Harnum, a single parent who has been involved with SPAN since it's inception, authored the book with professional collaboration from Annette Stapenhorst, R.D. This has proven to be a valuable resource as it offers economical, practical tips and recipes which are tasty, healthy and low cost. Copies may be obtained at SPAN office or by mail for a cost of $10 (no tax)
