CREATING A WORLD
WHERE EVERY SINGLE MOTHER HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO THRIVE
WELCOME TO INTERNATIONAL PARENTING & HEALTH INSTITUTE
The International Parenting & Health Institute (IPHI) for Single Mothers is a nonprofit organization committed to improving the quality of health and life of parents and their children, specifically single under-resourced mothers both locally and internationally.
Our vision is to create a world where under-resourced single mothers receive help, education, tools and the inspiration they need to improve their overall well-being, get better sleep, and live to their fullest potential, in order to healthfully support themselves and their children. As a natural result of supporting under-resourced single mothers, our impact will also aid in reducing and preventing physical and mental health challenges as well as domestic violence.
According to the Single Parent Success Foundation, a national nonprofit that encourages educational opportunities for single parents:
- 63% of suicides nationwide are individuals from single-parent families.
- 75% of children in chemical dependency hospitals are from single-parent families.
- More than half of all youths incarcerated in the U.S. lived in one-parent
families as a child.
According to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), single moms get less sleep than any other demographic.
According to a Pew Research Center study of 130 countries and territories, the U.S. has the world’s highest rate of children living in single-parent households with almost a quarter of US children living in single-parent homes, more than in any other country.
According to the National Center for Fathering, compared to living with both parents, living in a single-parent home doubles the risk that a child will suffer physical, emotional, or educational neglect.
Figures published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has found teenage girls and single parents with children are among the most likely victims of domestic abuse. Data also reveals that single parents are four times as likely to be a victim of domestic abuse than those living with other adults.
