WHAT WE DO

CHC changes the lives of young parents and their children every day! We empower and educate young moms and dads, both one‐on‐one and in groups. With our support, young parents will enjoy healthy pregnancies, give birth to full‐term babies, learn solid parenting skills, complete high school, and plan for higher education or a career.




Full-term pregnancies
Healthy birth weights
Fewer subsequent pregnancies
Knowledge of child development
Good parenting skills
Completion of high school
Post-graduation for school or work
Improved family stability
Economic self-sufficiency
Increased self-esteem


CHC changes the community as well! Without proper education, advocacy and support teen parents will have a significantly higher chance of using the social welfare system – cash assistance, food stamps, subsidized housing and involvement with Children & Youth protective services. We prepare these young parents to nurture their children and to become self‐sufficient and productive.
