Teen Parent Program
When a teenager becomes pregnant, both she and her baby face even greater challenges at home and school.
Key goals of RCMA's Teen Parent program are to educate and support the teen mothers to be and promote job skills that will help them achieve financial independence.

RCMA staff also works closely with collaborating agencies to assure pregnant teens receive prenatal and post-partum services.

The Teen Parent program provides:

  • Parental involvement and education activities.
  • Quality child care for newborns of high school students.
  • Opportunities for teens to sharpen parenting skills.
  • Workshops on child discipline, teen pregnancy, drugs and alcohol, the importance of fatherhood.
  • Academic assistance to maintain grades and help the student graduate.
  • Medical, dental, nutritional and mental health programs.
