Early Parenthood Program
Empowering teen mothers and their children to build a strong & healthy future.
The YWCA Lower Cape Fear’s Early Parenthood Program is for young women, ages twelve to nineteen, that are currently pregnant or have children. Eligible mothers must be attending school, or enrolled in an equivalent program, and residing in Columbus County. The program is free to qualified participants.
The goal of the program is to empower young parents with the tools needed to stay enrolled in school and graduate, provide access to prenatal and community resources, reduce repeat pregnancies, and develop strong parenting skills to raise healthy and school-ready children. The Early Parenthood program uses the “Parents As Teachers” Curriculum, designed to promote optimal childhood development, learning and engagement.
