Any good websites, grants, or other help out there for a teen mom (to-be)?

Just wondering if there are any organizations or such that I can refer to a few girls I am trying to mentor. (Adoption is NOT an option. These girls are keeping their child(ren) and their situations vary from rape, to one time mistakes and so on) Please, I need honest advice if you have it on where they can go or what they can do for more support. Thanx!

  • It can vary from state to state. Fastweb is good, and the local library is another resource you should check out. Good luck to you and to them!
