PROGRAMS

Young Mothers Program

The purpose of this program is to enlist young mothers, ages 16-23, who are in need of guidance and support to guide them through channels that will promote their overall well-being and the well-being of their children. Resource personnel and staff meet twice a month with the young ladies to help them become more focused and proactive in their lives.

Our first group of young mothers graduated in June 2013. Many of them are attending college or working full time.

Our new program is set to launch in 2015.
