Mother/Child - Pregnant Teens
The program assists teen mothers, as well as pregnant teens who are close to giving birth, to cope
with their own emotional issues, while learning to parent effectively. Staff provide supervision for the
babies during the day to allow the teen moms to attend school, work and develop the life skills the
will need to live independently and raise their child safely. Parenting skills training is offered in an effort to interrupt the cycle of child abuse and neglect that brought many of our young mothers into care. Our homes are located in Brooklyn and Suffolk County.
