Goddard College Single Parent Program, NBC Nightly News, 8/21/1987
The Single Parent Program at Goddard was the first of its kind in the country. Then Director of Development Doug North developed the program in response to what he saw as a pressing social concern.

In the fall of 1986, eleven single mothers and sixteen children moved to the Greatwood Campus.
