young parent program: offers intensive housing and employment case management, GED tutoring and parenting classes to homeless teenage parents between 18-25 staying in YWCA-sponsored emergency shelters and transitional housing.

Since 2007, the Young Parent Program has served 262 young parents and their families. Last year, 100 percent of participants achieved at least one of these milestones: gaining employment, increasing wages, obtaining a GED, enrolling in higher education or completing a vocational training program.

Wednesday Night Parenting Class (12-week course):
every Wednesday
6 - 8 p.m. at East Cherry YWCA

  • Enrollment includes open access to the Young Parent Job Center.
  • Open to all young parents ages 15-25 in the community (you do not need to be living in YWCA housing or be homeless); enroll by contacting Tamarack Randall at trandall@ywcaworks.org.
  • Mandatory for parents ages 18-25 staying in YWCA emergency shelters and transitional housing; enroll through your case manager.
