My daughter recently passed and she was a young mother. I want to open a home for young pregnant girls to ensure that they not only get the proper emotional support and medical treatment, but that they stay in school. I've spoken to home bound school teachers, midwives, parenting class teachers, cooking teachers and so many others. So often teen mothers are left to try to make their own way and they have no idea how to run a home, let alone raise a baby. I want to help change that. To let them know not everyone has given up on them. I recently helped an 18yo mother and she didn't even know how to do laundry. It's everything from laundry to graduation that these girls need help with. I want to help.
