What an amazing web series! Robert Townsend’s “Diary of a Single Mom” should really have its own slot on regular television. It’s a personal and true-to-life drama about the lives of three single mothers, one black, one Hispanic and one white grandmother. The lives of these three women merge under one roof as all three of them rent their own apartment in one building.
Set in Southern California, this drama represents the multi-faceted struggles of single moms and single parents in general. Financial problems, relationship problems, self esteem, addictions, problems with children, education and domestic violence, all issues are covered in this web series, brought to us by One Economy Corp., which is now already in it’s third season.

Why do I do what I do? Plainly and simply, it’s because there’s only one life to live and generations that need our wisdom and life experiences to make it. Since I was a little girl, I’ve always been passionate about helping others. Sometimes lack of economic and financial stability from growing up in a single parent, emotionally abusive home prevented a lot of that from happening, but it’s always been inside my heart.
Life is not always rosy; let’s face it and for some reason, God has allowed pain and suffering to coexist with pleasure and joy. So my journey and why I do what I do is about how to make the most of this life in whatever is given to us. From non-violence, to racial understanding , to protecting families of all kinds are my passions.
I want to send a special shout out in this first blog entry for all those who support Courage Network and are working to end domestic violence, to all of the survivors and family members. You are also a part of the reason of why I do what I do.
