I lived in this teen mother home with my young son. They helped us with everything we needed, food, housing, bathing. They refer you to places to get free clothes, and parenting classes - transportation provided-. They even give you bus fare to get to and from where you need to go. Curfew is 9:30, which is more than fair. It's a great place to help you get on your feet if you can simply follow their rules.
One community home helping teen mothers succeed..
I have had the honor to recently visit The Teen Parent Home in Seattle, WA and I must say that I am excited to see a program where teen mothers actually succeed in life. Unfortunately, this home is in some serious danger and is in need of some extra community TLC. It seems like this program which has been around for quite some time is about to close it's doors on the people who need it the most; the children who are not in a position to take care of themselves. From my understanding this is a voluntary placement home for pregnant teens or teen mothers with no other place to go and who wish to become successful with the help of the excellent staff at The Teen Parent Home. If you have a chance to visit or just stop by, talk with one of the staff and see for yourself how great they are with the children. Also, if you are a business and wish to donate funds to help keep these doors open, please do not hesitate to do so.
