Mission Statement

alley's house exists to break the generational, economic and social impact of teen pregnancy in the community. Our mission is t o empower teen mothers and their children to achieve independence through support services, education and mentoring.

Description

Nearly one million teens become pregnant every year. 40% of girls become pregnant at least once before age 20 and 96% of teen girls keep their babies. Many are alone, scared and without the education or resources to care for a baby. Most teen moms drop out of school. Most of their babies grow up and become teen moms.

In an effort to break this cycle, alley's house offers services and programs to teen mothers. Our goal is to empower teen moms to take control of their lives and make good decisions that will affect their lives as well as their babies. Unless we break the cycle, history will repeat itself.

I was a teen mother and I manage to fight throught life challenges and become a good mother. I became a woman that learned from her mishappening. I would love to talk to young mothers about my experience raising a daughter at a early age, for me the age was 16 years old.
