I'm not in Chicago, but welcome Cindy.  You might check to see if there are any teen MOPs groups being held at any churches near you.

I know of two but the registration process is long & it took awhile before I was actually in the group. I say we start our own hmu if interested.

she sounds like your best bet :) it's always fun to start those kind of things yourself and run it the way you like.

Well theres Christopher house & new moms both non-profit organization tthat strive to help young moms out. Problem is theres only so much help & so many teen moms.
Christopher house you call, schedule an appointment, then theres the "interview" where they discuss the program & talk about you, after all paperwork is filled out you meet your mentor who will make house visits every two weeks or monthly depends on the age of your little one, then you meet as a group I believe tues or thurs for some fun activities & a hot meal. Its really nice but I work the days they meet & the age group is young as well as the babies. See my son is two now & not very fond of discussions.
New moms is about the same but I have yet to have my phone calls returned because they try to prioritize the most neediest first. But they help with clothes, toys, diapers, and formula.
Both groups are great I have friends in both but again they really prioritize the moms who have absolutely no support then the moms who just need a group.

Like I said it would be great to get our own group together for moms who just want to hang out & thier child to socialize. We could even have little potlucks & snacks. Im more excited for the weather to warm up that would bring more options to go out.
