There are few things in this world that need protection as much as a newborn child, and, for the most part, their care and protection fall to the parents. But what happens when the parents themselves need help and protection? Each year 4,000 babies are born to teen moms with 67% of those moms living below the poverty line. Life for these moms isn't easy, with less than 1% of them will ever graduate from college and fewer than half will earn their high school diploma. In Colorado, a single mother must work over 80 hours per week at minimum wage in order to meet the basic needs for her and her child. Luckily for them, there are organizations out there who dedicate themselves to helping and caring for these struggling mothers and their children.

Through Hope House's efforts teen mothers are provided resources to drastically improve their lives and the lives of their children. and thats not all.

They provide a safe and caring environment to help support those who need it most, mothers and their children.
