Our goal is to provide education and support to help pregnant and parenting young people gain confidence and understanding. The ParentLink program is a home-based program that provides opportunities for young parents to meet and share the commitment of being a loving and caring parent. If you are a young person expecting a child or if you are a parent of a child under three years old, you are encouraged to participate in this free program.
Teen Parents Learn
This new program launched in Montgomery County in July 2017, and is a collaboration among Catholic Social Services, Lifestages Centers for Women, the Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation, LifeSkills High School, and the Montgomery County Educational Service Center. The program is designed to provide pregnant and parenting teens (with children from birth to age 5) with case management and the support they need to remain in high school during pregnancy, return to school after the birth of their baby, and graduate from high school while parenting. Each client’s individual needs will be addressed to help them manage their responsibilities, strengthen their parenting abilities, and focus on their own educational success. Program services are offered at no cost to the participants. For more information about Teen Parents Learn, or to make a referral to the program, call (937) 299-5465.
