Teen Parent Connection

Nationally, by age 19, 50% of girls in foster care report having been pregnant. The birth rate for foster teens is 31.6% vs. 12.2% for non-foster teens. Research shows children of teen parents are more likely to experience abuse and neglect and eventually be placed in foster care.

Our Mission

Teen Parent Connection helps to prevent child abuse, empower teen parents, provide life -long skills, and end the cycle of foster care.

What We Do

Education and Training

TPC’s cornerstone is our life coaching services. Our highly-trained life coaches directly provide (or ensure referrals to provide) parenting assessments, developmental screenings for children, individualized parenting & life skills education, and vocational training.

Coaches give one-on-one support during home visits and engage teens during monthly group classes on topics such as advocacy, parenting education, nutrition, developmental milestones and positive discipline. We coordinate all efforts to ensure customized, comprehensive services for parent and child.

With the help of the community, Teen Parent Connection provides clothing, food, baby essentials, and transportation for our teen parents and their children.
