CHC changes the lives of young parents and their children every day! We empower and educate young moms and dads, ages 14 - 26, both one‐on‐one and in groups. With our support, young parents will enjoy healthy pregnancies, give birth to full‐term babies, learn solid parenting skills, complete high school, and plan for higher education or a career.
CHC changes the community as well! Without proper education, advocacy and support teen parents will have a significantly higher chance of using the social welfare system – cash assistance, food stamps, subsidized housing and involvement with Children & Youth protective services. We prepare these young parents to nurture their children and to become self‐sufficient and productive.
