Contacting Rosemary's Babies
A teen parent, advocate or parent of a teen parent can refer a teen to our program via our website, text/call (513.813.8336), or via any social media platform.We only serve teen parents who will be caregivers for their babies. A referral can be made before or after your baby is born. We recommend contacting RBC when a determination is made that the teen will be parenting and the primary caregiver for the child.
Once we are contacted we will access your need. This can be done virtually or in-person. Based on your need we will determine if you provisionally qualify for our Leadership & Legacy Program

The Leadership & Legacy Program
The Leadership & Legacy Program is our teen parent & family support program that provides a leadership pathway through mentoring. These 1:1 Confidantes, who themselves were teen parents, support teen parents and their family as a Confidant. A Confidant is your family's mentor, coach and friend who supports you with developing "Your Plan for Your Journey."
By providing family support to three generations: the teen parent, parent and the child, we change the trajectory for the entire family. We focus on core areas: mental & physical health including behaviors, education and money management.
Tools for Your Journey
We provide our Petals With Purpose tools to support them through our Leadership & Legacy Program
The L & L Program teaches teen parents to master the positive concepts of self-leadership as well as transferrable skills that can be passed down to their legacies breaking generational barriers. Additionally early learning and educational tools are provided to support growth and development for you and your baby.
The Plan is the road map for a teen parent's journey. This individualized plan focuses on two-tiered goals for the teen parent and the family. Goals range from short term to long-term. We rely on our strategic partners to implement supportive services virtual and in-person. The plan includes providing a tablet to each family with specific support for the family.
