Teen Mother Choices at Lawndale Christian Community Church's passion and purpose is to EQUIP, EMPOWER and IMPACT the lives of the teen mothers and their children in the area. We Believe teen moms must be held accountable by speaking truth into their lives. We believe that without intervention, the teen moms will not be able to break generational cycles that will cause them fall prey to the welfare system. We believe they need to be encourages to set and reach goals that will propel them to move forward and be successful. We believe we must surround each teen mom with the love of Christ and teach her the way to to through Lifeskills Workshops™, so she too can become whole, independent and impact the lives of those around her, as well as in her own community.
Be Part of the Solution
Today in America, 761 babies are born each day to teen mothers (277,765 per year)
In 2015, the teen births in Illinois between ages 15-19 years old was 21.1 per 1,000 young women (National Campaign statistic)
Teen mothers are likely to have a second child within 24 months of the first child
1 out of 5 teen moms will have recurring pregnancies, unless there is intervention
62% of teen moms will drop out of school before completing high school, and less that 2% complete college by age 30
80% will spend at least part of their life dependent on welfare
Welfare becomes a never ending cycle that will be passed on from generation to generation
