It's a day designed to celebrate and support moms and dads doing it solo. Tuesday, March 21 is National Single Parent Day.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, close to 40 percent of families in the United States are headed by a single parent.

A local organization is working to make sure those families stay strong. It's called EverGreen Ministries in Hudsonville. On May 12 and 13, it's hosting the Midwest Single Parenting Summit.

You can register for that event online. There is an early bird special that runs through March 31.
