One professional counseling session for a teen mom or child.
The majority of the teen moms we serve have a background of physical or emotional abuse. You can help provide practical assistance for a young mother by paying for a professional counseling session.
Bus Pass $79
Purchase a one-month bus pass for a teen mom.
One of the largest barriers to self-sufficiency is lack of transportation. You can help a teen mom get to our Resource Center where we provide free programming such as GED Lab, Parenting classes, job skill workshops, and more.
GED Test $125

When a teen mom earns her GED, she takes an important step toward economic self-sufficiency. You can help her by paying for the official government and testing center fees associated with GED certification.
Computer Needs $50
Help meet our computer, IT & software needs.
In order to keep our GED Lab running and our girls moving into new jobs and/or higher education, we have a constant need for software updates, tech support and new equipment. Your donation will help our operations and our girls!
Early Learning $25
Accessing safe and reliable childcare is a significant barrier to self-sufficiency. Help our teen moms stay in their GED, Parenting, and Healthy Relationships classes by paying for one session of Early Learning, which focuses on language, acquisition and pre-literacy skills.
Help a teen mom cover vision costs.
It is not uncommon to struggle in our GED Lab or in class because they simply can't see well enough to read. You can help a teen mom by paying for her to visit an Eye Doctor and purchase a pair of eye glasses.
New Tires $500
Self-sufficiency requires reliable transportation.
Reliable transportation is one of the biggest barriers our teen moms face as they work toward self-sufficiency. You can help by providing new tires for a teen mom in crisis.
First Job Needs $30
Prepare a teen mom for her first day of work.
When our teen moms graduate and land their first job, they often need help purchasing items such as medical scrubs or professional attire. You can help her start her career right by helping her with these necessities.
Feed a teen mom and her child.
With 67% of teen moms living below the poverty line, hunger is a real issue our girls face. You can help by purchasing groceries for a week or for a month for a teen mom and her child.
