    Our History

    Led by by Jeanne Altendorf-McLennan, a registered nurse who was Prenatal Services Coordinator at Hinsdale Family Medicine Center, a group of dedicated founders established Teen Parent Connection (formerly Greater DuPage MYM) in June 1985. Their purpose was to provide adolescent parents with parenting education, support, and resources to improve the outcomes for young parents and their children.  Teen Parent Connection is currently the only agency in DuPage County providing comprehensive programs and services related to teen pregnancy and parenting.

     The mission of our organization is “to serve the community through education on the realities and responsibilities of teenage pregnancy and through long-term assistance to adolescent parents for their development of self-esteem, parenting skills, and empowerment towards self-sufficiency.”   The primary goal of the organization is to provide services that will prevent child abuse and neglect among this at-risk population.
