Mission: SASPaF is a student-led nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting single-parent families through financial assistance, emotional care, employment opportunities, and legislative reforms that would provide these families with increased educational opportunities.
Results: Last year, our team of 40 volunteers came together to build, paint, fully furnish, and eventually donate 11 pieces of furnitures worth over $5,400 to the East Los Angeles Women's Center. Today, these furnitures have helped thousands of single parent families need and victims of domestic abuse who come through the women's center everyday.
Partnering with MakerNexus and Single Parents of Power, two 501(c)(3) NPOs, we are currently hosting a COVID Care Package drive for single parent families, who are among the demographics being hit the hardest by COVID-19. So far, we have amassed 30+ individual donors and 1 grocery store donor, collecting 99 care packages amounting to over $2,600. These care packages will provide much needed assistance in the form of sustenance to 100 single parent families in need.

I had heard about this non-profit through a friend and I can definitely say that I have no regrets. I volunteered by making some care-packages and the whole process was super easy and friendly. Gathering together the materials for the families was more quick than I thought it was going to be and dropping off the stuff was even more efficient. The process was very well thought through by organizers and I would definitely participate again.
I was recently approached by a school mate asking if I would like to volunteer in a nonprofit organization he was involved with. I was glad I participated because the non perishable food items we packed and prepared for delivery were going to a good cause—to help single parents in need. All in all a great experience and I am eager to assist whenever I can
I created boxes of food with cereal, pasta, and other snacks for single moms. I’m really happy I was able to help out others in need. I heard of this project from my friend Ryan Qu. He spent a lot of time putting this together and I’m lucky to have been able to be a part of this great experience!
This nonprofit helps single parents provide food for their families. During the Covid-19 pandemic, unemployment increased and supplies decreased, making it difficult for people to obtain basic necessities. However, because of the great mission of this nonprofit, hundreds to thousands of parents were able to feed their families. Additionally, it was extremely easy to contribute to the cause.
