Teen Moms Fresh Start
2014 Workshops Launch late April
Research for our programs began in 2007 by the Mom of a Teen Mom. We have been providing community support since April of 2008.
Our Philosophy is that all members of society need to be treated equally. These Programs are A HAND UP, NOT A HAND OUT. A life changing program, if willing to do the work, that touches on all developmental issues including finances, health, parenting, and more.
Teen Moms Fresh Start is made up of team players. We
find a great satisfaction in reaching out and providing the support that so many families need. We are able to provide this type of service by networking and partnering with other organizations. It is important for people to be team players within their community, and be a part of the solution to the many problems we face today.
The Questionnaire is anonymous. The more honest the answer, as we inform students and youth when we are having them fill out a Questionnaire, the more accurate information we are able to compile and utilize for future program purposes. These Questionnaires are accounted separately from those we physically see completed by what age group. Thank you.
To provide programs based on life skills education and individual support to teen moms and dads, as well as programs to reduce teen pregnancy.
Over the past couple of years, Teen Moms Fresh Start (TMFS) had to pull back workshops in MD while the Founder/President dealt with life threatening health issues caused by Gastroparesis. Since Tanya's diagnosis Gastroparesis, and then Ehlers-Danlos (EDS), found at http://www.GastroparesisAndME.com, she has been instrumental in raising awareness and continues to research as well as speak out. Multiple other health issues seem to accompany GP and EDS. TMFS became a Fiscal Sponsor for Gastroparesis and ME to help raise the funds necessary to raise awareness to find a cure. When enough funds are raised to file the appropriate paperwork, Gastroparesis and ME will become a 501c3 nonprofit organization. In the meantime, TMFS oversees all of the financial aspects of Gastroparesis and ME.
Throughout the process of having to decrease Workshops, TMFS continues helping families in local communities with emergency assistance of multiple natures, included but not limited to food, clothing, Christmas, holiday and birthday needs.
TMFS is working on details to launch "Tell It Like It Is!" in MD and DC locations.
As we focus on our "Tell It Like It Is!" Program, our future goals include:
- The Educational Housing Program
- Increased Workshop and Activity locations
- Opening additional Chapters
- Network with other organizations active in creating positive changes
**We are looking for dedicated volunteers to work on the committee for the Educational Housing Program. Without a dedicated few, this very large project will not take off to be able to help so many who contact us looking for this type of educational situation. Please Contact Us through the form on this site, or email us at ContactUs@TeenMomsFreshStart.org
Networking also helps us help other families who do not have anyone or anywhere to turn.
It only takes a little time, kindness and a little extra effort to help turn someone's day around.
