Teen Family Support Programs
Since 1830, Inwood House has been the only organization in New York City focused primarily on comprehensively serving the needs of pregnant and parenting teens.
Teen parents have statistics stacked against them in almost all areas of development. For example, the stats show that less than 2 percent of teen moms earn a college degree by age 30.
Our programs meet young mothers and fathers where they are, providing care, tools and support to help them overcome the statistics and build a successful life for themselves and their babies.
Focusing on strengths and using innovative tools to empower, our residential and foster care programs offer comprehensive care – including education, employability and mental health services – for teen mothers who are in foster care, homeless, or adjudicated. Our fathers count program provides services and a safe space for teen dads.
