Teen Pregnancy Care

We are providing two services for expecting teens:

one for teens in foster care and one that assists young parents in our communities.

TBHC hopes to promote teen parents’ education and improve teen parents’ self-sufficiency and ability to support their children.
TBHC can provide the following for any young parent:

  • Teaching positive parenting skills
  • Encouragement for teen parents to make proactive, smart decisions as they become adults
  • Provide healthy social activities and programs to bring teen parents together
  • Help young parents complete school or continue their education
  • Support youth in acquiring job skills training
  • Connect youth with community resources 
  • Making sure teen parents’ children are exposed to healthy development and growth through critical years
THE NEED

More than 300 pregnant teens in Foster Care across Texas.

Approximately 24,000 children born to teens in Texas. These young parents are in our communities.

Teen Pregnancy Care Foster Home

The home is set up like dorm rooms and each mom will have their own space for her and her child. We will provide her resources and tools to not only take care of  her and her child’s physical needs but their emotional and spiritual needs as well. The young moms will be allowed to stay in the home as long as she is actively parenting and following the rules. Right now, we will only provide this service for expectant teens already in foster care.

How can I help?

Helping shape the lives of young teen parents can stop the generational cycle of foster care. There are many ways that you can play a part in changing both the teen mom and the baby’s future.

Consider these questions and email us at teenpregnancycare@tbhc.org if you’re interested. 

Would you be willing to foster these teen mothers?

Would you donate needed baby items? We have an on-going Amazon wishlist.

Would you volunteer your time to help with doctor appointments, babysitting or other errands?

Are you willing to mentor young parents (moms or dads) in our community?

We want to be your support as well as your resource when you are looking for help.
