THE STORY:

THIS PROJECT IS TO PROVIDE FUNDS TO RESEARCH AND ESTABLISH A GROUP HOME FOR PREGNANT TEENS.

AFTER MORE THAN 20 YEARS IN THE SOCIAL SERVICES FIELD, i HAVE SEEN THE OVERWHELMING IMPACT THAT TEEN PREGNANCY HAS ON THE LIVES ONF THOSE INVOLVES; AS WELL AS, THE SOCIAL SERVICES SYSTEM AS A WHOLE. WHEN THE PREGNANT TEEM IN FACED WITH OVERWHELMING DECISIONS TO KEEP THE CHILD OR GIVE FOR ADOPTION; IN MOST CASES LITTLE GUIDANCE IS AVALIABLE, LEAVING THE TEEN ALONE WITH NO WHERE TO TURN.

THE VISION IS TO PROVIDE A SAFE NON JUDGEMENTAL ATMOSPHERE FOR THE TEEN TO MAKE THE BEST DECISION OR THE TEEN TO MAKE THOSE DECISIONS. NEITHER OPTION WILL BE STRESSED; IT WILL BE THE TEENS DECISON AFTER BEING EDUCATED AND COUNSELED ON THE OPTIONS.

IF THE TEEN DECIDES ON ADOPTION, THEN AN OUTSIDE AGENCY WILL BE CONTACTED TO PROVIDE THOSE SERVICES, WHILE THE TEEN IS GIVEN THE SUPPORT AND GUIDANCE TO ACCEPT THE DECISION AND PREPARE TO MOVE BEYOND THE SEASON IN HER LIFE.

iF THE TEEN DECISES TO DELIVER AND KEEP THE BABY, SHE WILL BE PROVIDED WITH A FOUNDATION TO PREPARE HER FOR THE CHALLENGES AHEAD, INCLUDING COMPLETEING HER EDUCATION, PARENTING SKILLS, AND BASIC LIVING SKILLS. IF THE FATHER OF THE CHILD IS IN THE PICTURE, THEN GUIDANCE WILL BE PROVIDED TO GIVE THE RELATIONSHIP THE BEST CHANCE POSSIBLE FOR SUCESS, BY OFFERING BOTH RELATIONSHIP AND PARENTING SKILLS TO BOTH.  IF THE FATHER IS ABSENT, THEN GUIDANCE WILL BE PROVIDED TO THEOTHER REGARDING PATERNITY AND SUPPORT.

IN EITHER CASE THE TEEN WILL BE PROVIDED WITH A SAFE NON JUDGEMENTAL HOUSING, GUIDANCE & MENTORING AND NECESSARY MEDICAL CARE TO ENSURE THAT BOTH THE MOTHER AND UNBORN CHILD HAVE THE BEST CHANCE POSSIBLE AT SUCESS.

BY INTERVENING AT THIS POINT IN THE PREGNANT TEENS LIFE, THE VISION TO:

1. PREVENT FUTURE UNPLANNED PREGNANCIES

2. GIVE THE TEEN TO BECOME A SELF SUFFICENT MEMBER OF SOCIETY

3. REDUCE THE BURDEN ON THE SOCIAL SERVICES SYETEM

4. REDUCE THE OCCURANCE OF CHILD ABUSE AND NEGELECT

THESE FUNDS WILL BE USEDTO:

1. ESTABLISH THE CORPORATION

2. ESTABLISH AND EQUIP AN OFFICE

3. COMPLETE NECESSARY RESEARCH TO PROVIDE EMPIRACLE PROOF OF   NEED

4. CONSULTANT & GRANT WRITER FEES

5. MARKETING EXPENSES TO PRESENT OUT VISION TO THE COMMUNITY.

HELP GIVE A FIGHTING CHANCE TO A POPULATION THAT HAS BY HISTORY BEEN GIVEN UP ON AND LEFT TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES.
