What You'll Get

The Issue: Young Mothers Face Overwhelming Challenges

According to data from the March of Dimes, more than 75% of unmarried teen mothers require welfare services within five years of the birth of their first child, and about one in four teenaged mothers under age 18 will have a second baby within two years. Approximately 64% of children whose teen parents dropped out of high school live in poverty, compared to 7% of children born to adult married parents with high-school diplomas.

The Campaign: Help Provide Baby Care Items for One Month

If this Grassroots campaign raises $350, then Project Home Indy can fund living expenses for one teenaged mother and her child for one month while they live at Project Home Indy and work to gain self-sufficiency. Living expenses include baby-care items such as diapers, formula, and baby wipes. Each additional $10 raised will go toward living expenses for another young mother.

You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.

About Project Home Indy

Project Home Indy (PHI) provides a long-term residence for young mothers with individual case management and programming designed to help each person transition to self-sufficiency. The residence can house five young women aged 15–19 who are pregnant or parenting young children for up to two years at a time. During their stays, they complete secondary education and engage in courses on parenting and life skills, such as contraception, technology, and economic literacy. Project Home Indy also provides health care for mothers and children including pediatric care, substance-abuse treatment, and mental-health services. Each young mother can determine the amount and intensity of the services she requires from the program, while gathering the tools to support herself and her child.
