Teen Mothers and Their Babies

Entrants to the homes are first-time teenage mothers, often referred by social workers, police, schools, or health authorities. At Mary’s Child, each mother engages in daily morning meditation, mid-day rosary, and weekly Mass. In addition to spiritual growth, mothers are provided with educational opportunities and life-enabling skills. Courses range from computer literacy in the on-site lab to home economics classes, such as culinary arts. Educational workshops on topics like parenting skills and life choices further empower them, laying a foundation for employability and independence upon leaving the home.
