Welcome to the One Parent Families Association! We are glad that you have found us and hope that you will become part of this great organization. There truly is something for everyone here, whether your kids are young, teenagers or even full grown — or whether you have custody of your kids or not.
The OPFA has been there for one parent families for almost 40 years. We are a non-profit volunteer organization. Our activities are organized and run by parents just like you and everyone contributes to the success of the activities and the organization. Volunteering not only helps make our activities a success — volunteering is truly one of the great “feel good” activities. It’s also a way to meet new people in a safe and friendly environment.
You will find lots of activities for you and your family! We have family activities every month and thanks to our volunteers, most are subsidized or even free. One month you might see us go to the Toronto Zoo, another month we might be bowling or rollerskating. We have great parties at Christmas and Easter, pumpkin carving at Hallowe’en and summer wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Canada’s Wonderland!! We have special activities for youth and opportunities for them to earn their high school volunteer hours too!
We know that adults need adult time too so we have many great adult activities too! Our activities inlcude nights out at the movies, at the theatre or a comedy club, trips to Niagara Falls, winery tours, euchre nights, hockey games — and many more! We also play recreational volleyball and softball and have tournaments with other chapters. Even if you haven’t played since high school or have never played, it’s not too late to learn! Come out and have some fun!
Come for the kids — you’ll stay for the friendships!
