THE STORY:

Community Social Services of Wayne County (CSSWC) has been providing essential human services to the residents of Southeastern Michigan since 1946. CSSWC's Teen Infant Parenting Services (T.I.P.S) program strives to give an equal chance to every child.  Young mothers who are homeless and pregnant and/or parenting face overwhelming obstacles such as difficulty accessing housing and child care and cannot easily navigate temporary cash assistance programs just to name a few.  They have limited ability to continue their education and lack of knowledge on child rearing which brings additional challenges to these young women.

The TIPS program helps give these young mothers and their children a chance at being successful in life by providing transitional housing and numerous resources.  The mothers and their children are given a safe place to stay while they learn how to care for not only the child but for themselves also.  The transitional housing apartment for young mothers and their children, has 18 individual units and the families are allowed to remain in the apartment for up to 2 years. The family is provided with basic support services which includes parenting educational classes, individual/group counseling, life skills training and case management. 

One component of the program's support services includes group sessions facilitated by the teens to discuss issues that are important to them.  The teens receive two day trainings to teach the techniques to conducting an effective group session.  Day care services are provided for their children while sessions take place.  Services provided through the TIPS program are designed to create team building skills, work/life balance for homeless teen mothers and their children transitioning into a permanent living arrangement.  Funding is needed to be able to continue providing shelter and services to these teen mothers and their children.
