Our teen moms learn important parenting skills, and are able to complete their education at Bethel Christian Academy, our on-campus school.With classes sizes of 3 to 12 students, students receive personalized attention that allows them to catch up in school and earn a high school diploma. They also may be employed in part-time off-campus jobs, as they work toward self-sufficiency.
Each young mom lives on campus in a family-style living home, with other teen moms and their children. Each mom has a private bedroom and bathroom to share with her child. House Parents live in the home and provide daily guidance, supervision, care and accountability. Daycare is provided during school hours.
A Full Range of Services
Our social workers develop an individual program plan that focuses on spiritual, physical, intellectual, relational, and emotional needs and growth with each of the program participants, as well as arrange for counseling and other services required for success. Families are encouraged to participate in family counseling, visit and call consistently, attend all meetings and parent education classes, and maintain contact with House Parents and social workers.
Young moms and their babies attend Sunday services at neighboring churches of various denominations with their House Parents.
Families or legal guardians visit and call their young moms on a regular basis. In addition, they attend all meetings, counseling sessions, and parent education classes, and maintain contact with House Parents and social workers.
