Monthly Potlucks

We hold monthly potlucks at Downsview Park. Kids have a fun time playing together while adults get to mix and mingle. We usually have some high school volunteers to bring the kids out to the playground or keep them entertained with games to give the parents a bit of a break. Our monthly potlucks are FREE for OPFA members, or just $5 per parent if you’re not ready to join.

Virtual Events

We get it, you don’t always want to leave your house. And sometimes you can’t. We also hold online meet and greets, family game nights and virtual show and tells.

It’s all about connecting…

Being a single parent family has it’s challenges and can be very isolating. But, it doesn’t have to be. We have single parents that come from many different backgrounds, in a variety of situations. Whether you are new to the country with no family or friends nearby, or lost them all in the split, you will find new friends here. If you are a single parent by choice, or circumstance, your kids will make new friends here too.

Some of our events have a big turnout of 30 or 40 people. Other times, it may only be a handful. We don’t cancel any events unless it is less than 2 people that RSVPd. We don’t care how big or small an event it. What we care about is that the people who show up are able to connect with others and that their kids can just play and be kids for a bit.

We are always looking for volunteers to help out and host events. Reach out if you have time to give!
