It's no secret that the teen years can be tough. And for some girls, the standard turbulent emotions and raging hormones are just a small part of the struggle.
  • They are girls who have had a baby and are parenting alone...
  • Who are pregnant and considering their options...

These girls need a little extra help.  These girls need a person to come alongside them, bringing compassion, advice and spiritual direction.  Someone who won't cast stones, but will write a message of hope in the sand.

What is YoungLives?
YoungLives is a unique cutting edge non-profit Christian organization designed to EMPOWER and EQUIP teen moms to become productive citizens in the community. A program that teams up with mature Christian women to provide teen girls in crisis with timely encouragement, guidance and ongoing support.
Join YoungLives in our effort to grow this phenomenal ministry and impact the lives of teen moms across the US. By becoming a donor, you are helping this organization to thrive in areas such as: staffing and training, salaries, and local events, as well as providing resources (educational and tangible) for teen moms, along with supplementing the cost of the yearly camp experience. All YoungLives services are free to the moms, so outside donors are crucial to providing the financial support needed to maintain the effectiveness of this awesome cause. All it takes is a little commitment, a lot of love, and a few simple steps to provide the needed resources. First, click on the Donors tab to the left of this webpage. Second, click on the link for a One-Time or Monthly Recurring Gift. Third, create your Young Life Giving Account. Fourth, GIVE! No gift is too small or too big! Don’t forget to include DC-34 for the area number.
Are you willing to forego one movie outing, a trip to the salon, or a daily cup of coffee in order to give to a cause that will help improve the lives of the next two generations? These young ladies need our help, so let’s reach out our hand to make sure they know that they are not forgotten. Thank you in advance for deciding to take part in this amazing opportunity to help change the lives of these teen moms!
