To help teen parents master the concepts of self-leadership to leave a legacy
Why teen parents?
Rosemary's Babies opened our doors in November 2016. Our organization found there were programs that taught parenting skills but these programs failed to provide life skills. Life skills are essential for those who have to transition from childhood to parenthood without a plan.
We can change the trajectory for these young parents and their babies.
What makes us innovative?
We have a space teen parents can chill, receive professional & peer support.
We provide a leadership pathway for three generations: teen parent, their child and parent of teen parent
Teen parents and their babies are placed on the P.E.T.A.L'S track once enrolled in L& L program provide virtual & in-person support to meet families where they are
Who do we serve?
We serve teen moms and teen dads
We serve teens ages 13-19
We serve OH, KY, & IN
Virtually around the globe
There are no income restrictions
There are more than 3,000 teen births yearly in
Hamilton County. There are 12,000+ births to teen parents yearly in Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana.
How do we measure our outcomes/success?
We measure 7 focus areas in our program. We then evaluate families from where they began to how far they have come to reaching their personal and family goals
We monitor progress via interviews, surveys and personal feedback that is tracked throughout the families time in the program.
