Teen Parent Connection

Our mission: 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.   

Since 1985, Teen Parent Connection has delivered education, support, and resources to adolescent parents and their children in DuPage County, Illinois. Our primary goal is to provide services that will prevent child abuse and neglect among this at-risk population.

Motherhood . . . It can mean many things, and our own definition of it is largely defined by our individual experiences. To one person, motherhood might simply mean the act of raising children; to another, motherhood might be what defines them.

Becoming a parent for the first time is a daunting experience for even the most prepared parent. For a teen mom, it can be especially overwhelming and difficult. Teen Parent Connection works to provide young mothers like Kayleigh with the resources and support they need to help them nurture their children during the earliest and most vulnerable years.

A caring father can have a profound and positive impact on the life of his child simply by being involved. That's why Teen Parent Connection focuses on supporting the unique needs of young fathers throughout all of our programming. We work to make sure that dads get the support, information, and resources they need to be the hero of their child's story from the very beginning.

By contributing to our Father's Day Campaign you ensure that young fathers in our community are ready to be a positive presence in their child's life.
