Holloway House & Resource Center
Holloway House & Resource Center is a managed site for teen parent families. Our new 6,400 sq ft. facility will house all of our current operations, provide business and educational resources, and provide supportive housing for teen moms and their babies; additionally, a state-of-the-art tech lab will serve the community.
RBC's Supportive Housing will be a highly integrated system of living arrangements and professional case management services that provides parenting teens a safe place to live, 24-hour access to caring adults, and connections to community resources that provide share responsibility plans.
This system helps young parents develop the necessary life skills and secure resources needed to maintain housing throughout adulthood. Supportive housing programs can be more effective when young parents shape and direct their future in partnership with case managers and other key staff.
Please take a tour of the Holloway House & Resource Center.

Our first office RBC was only able to provide virtual services and 1:1 support for families.
Rosemary's Babies Co.'s goal is to acquire and renovate the property located at 3864 Reading Road. Our need is dire. Daily we receive calls from teen parents who are ejected from their home by a parent or caregiver. When they turn to Rosemary's Babies for help, we have NO SAFE PLACE for these parenting children to go. The need for our resources has more than doubled during this pandemic and we can only serve so many in our small office.
We need your help to raise $1M in 6 months. The Port is requiring our organization to raise the total project and renovation costs to pursue a purchase agreement. We must meet this deadline by February 28, 2022, or we will forfeit our option to purchase this property; leaving teen parents and their babies without a home.
We are seeking monetary and in-kind services, in-kind supplies, and support to improve this property as well as support our capital project. Let's work together to Change the Outlook for teen parent families.
