A Shocking Stat and the Reality of Hunger


04/08/2014

Because 67% of teen moms in Colorado live below the poverty line, hunger is a real issue for them. That is why we provide healthy meals for our teen moms and their children when they come to our various educational classes and workshops.

However, even though it is only early April, we are already more than half-way through our annual budget for groceries.

Why are we running through our grocery money so quickly? Because our Community Programs are exploding and we are serving more teen moms this spring than ever before! This is exciting, but we need your help to support this increase in teen moms who are coming to us for help in creating a better future for themselves and their kids.
