Larimer County single fathers face slim programming support

· Apr. 20, 2015, 4:13 pm

In Larimer County, 30 percent of single parents are dads, reports the Coloradoan, and for those men, support programs aren't common.  

Marla Manchego, single parent counselor at Front Range Community College, told the paper that it's hard to get resources to single fathers. 

"It is a little disheartening working with single dads because there aren't as many resources," she said. "They're in the same boat as a single mom, trying to find child care and working and putting all of the logistics together."

But in the programs open to single fathers, there still isn't much participation. Only four percent of Front Range Community College's single parent program participants are men, reported the paper.
