Teen Parent Services

By caring for both teens/young parents and their children, we can improve developmental milestones and school readiness for babies and dramatically increase high school graduation rates for parents.

 

Teen Parent Services provides long-term housing options for homeless pregnant and parent teens and their children.

We assist pregnant and parenting teens in becoming self sufficient. The program is available to teens/young parents under the age of 24.

Teen Parent Services also provides transitional housing for homeless pregnant and parenting teens and their children – where families can live for up to 18 months, Rapid Re-Housing rental assistance and utility deposit for homeless teen parents and youth, for up to 24 months.
