I'm thinking about setting up a support group for young single moms, I have a long story for my mnay reasons on why I would like to do this but I don't know how to go about starting it. I would like to beable to help them, at least by having meetings where they can come and talk about what they are going through and not be judged. I like helping others it makes me feel good knowing that I helped someone even if it was just lending an ear or a shoulder to listen and cry on.

starting a support group is not an easy thing but i am working on starting one. first, what i would suggest you do is contact a few women's shelters in your area and bounce the idea off of them, they will hopefully be able to help you and give you suggestions/contacts/ the one that i am starting is for people suffering from chronic pain. i have contacted several people and will be partnering with a hospital.

Human Resources should be able to give you the contacts you need. Best wishes~
