This descriptive and qualitative research study were purposely conducted to find out the economic status, aspirations and problems met by solo parents living in urban poor community in the Province of Aklan Philippines for the Fiscal Year 2018-2019. Data revealed that solo parent-respondents were dominated by females whose ages ranged on the age bracket of 18 to 23 and have been a single parent for two to five years. It was noted that children living with a single parent were living with their parents and most solo parents have no more than two children. Solo parents aspired that their children could earn a diploma specifically in a state university. The problems met by the respondents were lack of financial support from the absent parent, inability to find work due to inferior personal attributes, poor working ability and lack of personal and social competencies needed for the job. Majority of the solo parents particularly those mothers often worked overtime to compensate for the low salaries, thus their domestic responsibilities were performed by their parents. Purposive sampling was done in this study.
