Approximately 34% of teenage girls become pregnant at least once before reaching the age of 20. Less than 40% of teen mothers that begin families before the age of 18 ever earn a high school diploma, and only 1.5% earn a college degree by the age of 30. Mom’s Closet has recently partnered with South Park and Westport TAPP (TeenAge Parenting Program) schools to begin our BRIDGE Program. We want to connect with teenage single mothers in the hopes of encouraging them to move onto higher education. If you are interested in applying for the BRIDGE program or have any questions about the program please call the office at 502-245-9899.
We are so excited about expanding our services through offering additional services through career planning. We need to survey what the needs are for single moms, what things do we need to offer, and then how to provide these services to the moms. If you are a planner and would like to assist or have donations that would help us furnish the center please call our office at 245-9899.
