‘Mom’s House’ hosts graduation ceremonies

TOLEDO: On May 15, 2019, Mom’s House hosted its 2019 graduation ceremony at The Summit Event Center, honoring nine graduates from local high schools and colleges and four pre-school graduates into kindergarten.

Lucas County continues to rank high in the area of teenage pregnancy. Sixty percent of those young parents will drop out of school and continue cycles of poverty and at-risk behaviors. Also, alarming is the national subsequent or repeat pregnancy rate. Almost a quarter of teen mothers have a second pregnancy before the age of twenty. At Mom’s House, the repeat pregnancy rate is just under 3%.  
With these statistics, it is crucial that local community organizations like Mom’s House provide effective programs that aid in breaking the cycle of poverty and welfare. Studies show that programs that motivate youth to achieve higher levels of education as well as provide instruction on relationships and sexual attitudes, a stable environment and mentoring opportunities, work in preventing cycles and repeat pregnancies.
“We provide exceptional Early Childhood Education for the children while the mothers attend school, however we feel the heart of our program lies within additional services that include tutoring, counseling, parenting classes, mentoring, financial, legal services, interviewing procedures, and much more.” says Christina Rodríguez, Executive Director. “Today we celebrate the moments when dreams become reality for our young families, the beginning of a bright future” she adds.
Mom’s House is a nonprofit organization located in Toledo, Ohio since 1993. For more information on Mom’s House please call 419-241-5554 or visit www.momshousetoledo.org.
