Approximately 34% of teenage girls become pregnant at least once before reaching the age of 20. Less than 40% of teen mothers that begin families before the age of 18 ever earn a high school diploma, and only 1.5% earn a college degree by the age of 30. SPARC Hope has recently partnered with the the TAPP school, TeenAge Parenting Program, to begin our BRIDGE Program. We want to connect with teenage single mothers in the hopes of encouraging them to move onto higher education. If you are interested in applying for the BRIDGE program or have any questions about the program please call the office at 502-245-9899, or go online to our Need Assistance page and fill our the intake form.
We are so excited about expanding our services through offering additional services through career planning. We need to survey what the needs are for single parents, what things do we need to offer, and then how to provide these services to single parents. If you are a planner and would like to assist, please call our office at 245-9899.
