Denny’s Funds a Single-Parent Resource Center at a Black College in Florida

Denny’s Restaurants is funding the Single Parent Student Resource Center on the campus of Florida Memorial University in Miami Gardens. The center offers counseling, career advising, and other services geared specifically for single parents who attend the university. A child care area is housed in the center where single parents can study while their children read, play, watch television, or get help with their homework.

More than 60 percent of the students at the university are women and many are single parents. There are about 200 single parents among the university’s 1,800 students.
