Empowering Young Mothers. Transforming Futures.
What We Do
Over the past 13 years, YoungMoms has empowered more than 240 pregnant and parenting young mothers to stay in school, pursue vocational training, parent more confidently, and make healthy personal decisions. Investing in young moms has a ripple effect on their children, families, and the entire community.
Specialized Case Management
Our case managers work with each young mom to develop short and long-term goals, create a plan to achieve them, and access area resources to support their families.
Monthly Life Skills Workshops
Once a month, our team gathers to provide clients with ongoing life skills instruction in areas such as healthy relationships, nutrition, first aid training, and budgeting. These workshops also provide the opportunity for young moms to develop relationships with peers in similar life circumstances and with positive adult role models.
Young moms can remain in the program up to four years, allowing us to assist them in overcoming obstacles which might normally derail their progress in achieving goals. This long-term investment in the life of a young woman is what makes our program uniquely effective.
I started this program without knowing
who I was or where I was going.
Today, I can say that my life is the dream I had every night.
