Family Finances Series: Separation & Single Parenting in the Military

Event starts: Tuesday, July 10 at 11:00 am EDT

Event ends: Tuesday, July 10 at 12:30 pm EDT

This is a free webinar hosted by the Personal Finance concentration area and the Family Development concentration area of the Military Families Learning Network.

For many service members with families and children, it can be a difficult balance between responsibilities to their families and to the military. Separation and single parenting can make this balance even more difficult, leaving service members and their family members shouldering even more responsibilities than before.
