Teen Parent Connection (TPC)

The Facts

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

Our mission is to provide support, guidance,

and assistance needed by teen mothers

& fathers to succeed as adults and parents.

What We Do

TPC provides focused, holistic support for pregnant or parenting teens in state custody or teen parents with a child in state custody in Georgia, and targeted assistance for their children.

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.

At the age of 17, Sapphire found herself overwhelmed with constant victim blaming from many people telling her she was, “Too young to know how to be a parent.” As a single mother in foster care, she felt she had no one to turn to in her time of need.

With the help of her Teen Parent Connection Life Coach, Sapphire’s mental health and outlook on life took a positive turn. “It’s more than just a pay check for them. They really want to help you grow,” Sapphire says. Her life coach provided her with job opportunities, clothes for both her and her son, and the desire to keep moving forward.
