Are there other local organizations serving single-parent families? If so, how do you ensure there is no duplication of services?

Yes. Other community organizations provide services to single-parent families, and PEARL works to fill in missing pieces of the puzzle as determined by what individual families need. In addition, PEARL is consistently in contact with local partners to communicate service areas, populations served and areas of need. This communication helps alleviate the chance of duplicating services while improving the stewardship of our donor resources
