Northern and Western Chester County
Parenthood is the leading reason why girls drop out of school.
According to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, "less than half of teen mothers graduate from high school and only 2% earn a college degree by age 30." Mom's House has served over 236 children and 216 single parents. 71 mothers have graduated from their course of study while in the program at Mom's House. The goal is to support single parents in whatever way needed so that they remain in school and complete their enducation enabling them to obtain gainful employment to support their young families.
