Single Parent Program on WCAX

WCAX: Burlington, Vermont - December 13, 2011

Being a single parent and going back to college can be a life dream, and it can also be stressful. To help these students out, Champlain College started the Single Parents Program. It includes extra support for these students and during the holidays the college helps out even more by getting gifts for the kids of single parents.

Carol Moran-Brown, the Champlain Single Parents Program Director, and Todd Pritchard, a volunteer who coordinates gift giving to students in the program, appeared on WCAX's The :30 to talk about the program.
