What We Do
The Problem: Poverty
Over 2,000 babies were born to teen moms in Colorado last year. 67% of parenting teen moms live below the federal poverty line.
In Colorado, a single mom with one child must work over 116 hours per week at minimum wage to remain above the federal poverty line.
Less than 2% of teen moms will ever graduate from college, and fewer than half will earn their high school diploma.
The Solution: Empowerment
We measure economic growth across four domains: Education and Career Development, Financial Health, Housing and Economic Basics.
A Place to Belong
We design and organize community activities and events to allow our teen moms the opportunity to build friendships.
We measure personal growth across three domains: Parenting, Emotional Well-being
and Social Connections.
Our Resource Center is located in Arvada, Colorado and serves over 250 teen moms from all across the Denver-metro area as they participate in our free self-sufficiency programming.
Hope House Colorado’s Residential Program offers a safe, stable home for teen moms and their children who are participating in our programs and who have become homeless or are living in an unsafe environment.
