Teen Mother Choices’ Statistics

Since 1989, over 400 teen mothers have found practical assistance through Teen Mother Choices. Of those 400 mothers, 90% of them have “graduated” themselves out of the program or are currently working towards “graduation”. That is to say, they have come to a point in their lives where they feel they have become able to live independently away from the support of Teen Mother Choices. Of those 90% who have graduated from TMC:

  • 100% of those teen mothers needing to complete their high school education or technical certificate program, did so!
  • Full-time employment was attained by 98% of teen mothers who chose not to  pursue further education!
  • Of those eligible for college or trade school 93% chose to further their education!
  • Only 13 teen mothers were asked to leave the program because they had subsequent pregnancies while they participated in the program!

In 2010, 10 TMC graduates met together to form a TMC Alumni group to support the ministry of Teen Mother Choices through volunteering time, raising  awarenss and needed funds. TMC Alumni also meet socially for personal, emotional and spiritual growth.
