Youth Mothers Rising

Dream Youth Clinic has implemented a “two-generation” program called Young Mothers Rising to provide wraparound support for our young women who are pregnant, parenting, or planning to become pregnant. Young Mothers Rising helps young mothers and mothers-to-be under the age of 24 with emotional support, social and basic needs services, and provides a supportive peer and adult community. The Young Mother’s Rising program offers a bi-weekly virtual young mothers group to education and support on pregnancy and parenting; a community fund to support basic needs and to provide financial scholarships to support our yount mother’s education and career goals; and intensive one-on-one navigation to assist with individual needs. The Young Mothers Rising program moves our adolescent mothers from the fringes to the center, by creating a space where young motherhood and young families are empowered, celebrated and supported.
