Teen Parents in Action (TPA) empowers pregnant and parenting teens to shape their future, particularly through their choices around education, health and childbearing.
We provide young parents with individual support, group parenting education, and a sense of community among their peers. Under the guidance of the Program Director, a team of graduate student interns helps young parents access essential services like housing, food, clothing and quality daycare.
Another critical focus of TPA is increasing parenting skills and knowledge about sexual health. Through a partnership with Inwood House, we offer services tailored to the needs and strengths of young people. These include Passport to Parenting, a 12-week workshop about parenting and sexual health; a doula-matching service to support mothers through childbirth and the perinatal period; and TXTLine, a free text messaging resource covering issues of health and childrearing.
