Our Passion...Our Purpose

Equipping the Church to Empower Teen Mothers to Impact the Community

The Problem

  • The United States government spends between 9 and 11 billion dollars annually on households headed by teen mothers
  • The United States has the highest teen pregnancy and birth rate in the developed nations
  • 70% of teen moms will have reoccurring pregnancies, unless there is intervention
  • 70% of teen moms will drop out of school before completing high school
  • 80% will spend at least part of their life dependent on welfare
  • 80% of teen fathers walk away from their responsibility, including child support
  • 13% of males born to teen mothers are more likely to end up incarcerated
  • 52% of all mothers on welfare had their first child as a teenager
  • Welfare becomes a never ending cycle that will be passed on from generation to generation

The Solution

  • Training and equipping local Church’s to serve teen mothers through a “Teen Mother Choices” Program that has been in existence for over 27 years
  • Demonstrating the love of Christ with grace, truth and accountability
  • Providing each teen mother with a Christian Mentor
  • Empowering teen mothers to become independent functioning members in their community and staying off government assistance
  • Lifeskills Workshops™ based on Biblical principles including Parenting Skills, Monthly Budgeting, Job Skills, Goal Setting, Educational Guidance and many more
  • Assisting with the cost of childcare or transportation to empower the teen mothers to complete their education and/or work full-time
  • Commitment to delay further pregnancies while enrolled in the Teen Mother Choices Program
  • Breaking strongholds and generational cycles that will impact both the lives of the teen mothers and their children

  • What We Do

    Teen Mother Choices International (TMCI) is a training and consulting ministry with the purpose of equipping churches, existing organizations and individuals who desire to develop a Teen Mother Choices Program in their communities. TMCI provides those interested in starting a Teen Mother Choices Program with a comprehensive training program beginning at the research stages (a Feasibility Study) to fully implementing a complete program for teen moms and their children.

    For over 27 years Teen Mother Choices have empowered teen mothers to become independent, functioning members of society. In 1989, after conducting a 10-month Feasibility Study, Christa March began serving teen moms and their children through her home church in Arlington Heights, Illinois. The program was called Teen Mother Choices. Teen Mother Choices served young moms between the ages of 13-23 years and used the volunteer and financial support of Christa's home church and surrounding churches to serve teen moms.
