Support through the big steps, and the little ones
in proud partnership
Mentorship and training that empowers teen moms to live independently
Each teen mom is paired with a mentor mom. These relationships, which deepen as trust builds, are the heart of the HOPEteen mom’s experience. Mentors act as role models and guides, encouraging and celebrating their young counterparts along the way.

How to get started
Having support makes all the difference!
Being pregnant at a young age can feel completely overwhelming. Without support, teen pregnancy can lead to poor health, lower education, and poverty for the mom and her child.
The Hope Center in Lake Zurich has partnered with Teen Mother Choices, whose program is a proven pathway for young mothers to break the cycle of teen pregnancy, childhood adversity, and generational poverty.
In fact, 98% of moms in this program graduate from high school and 96% go on to college or job-skills training.
We welcome moms and their little ones with open arms and provide a safe, judgment-free space where they will receive guidance, mentorship, resources, training, and so much more.
