The services of the Single Parents’ Center continued to expand in 2022, and more families received help than before, the organization told Hungarian news agency MTI.
The first Single Parents’ Center opened in Budapest, on the Pest side, in May 2018. Its aim is to provide practical help and community for families who are missing a parent. In 2022, the second center opened on the Buda side.
In their statement, they recalled that last year important legislative changes came into effect that greatly support the daily lives of single-parent families. For example, the rules on the recovery of alimony have been simplified and tightened, and the amount of certain benefits has increased.
In 2022, the center provided support, services, or community to more than 10,000 families. It participated in several festivals, offering a variety of programs for visiting parents and children.
Following the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, donations were personally delivered to families in need, and refugee children from Ukraine were also welcomed at the Buda Single Parents’ Center in cooperation with the Hungarian Scout Association.
The first Single Parents’ Festival was held in September, jointly organized with the Museum of Transport.
