Pregnant and Parenting Teens Program

Angel House was established in 2006 and is located in nearby Mason, Michigan. In May of 2010, Angel House successfully transitioned from a children’s emergency shelter to a residential program for at-risk pregnant and parenting girls. The change resulted from a growing need in the foster care system and the lack of a specialized transitional living center in the mid-Michigan region. 

The mission of Angel House is dedicated towards helping young mothers become nurturing parents and productive members of the community. Service highlights of the mother-baby program include:

  • Nine to twelve months of residential programming in a nurturing home-like setting.
  • Goal oriented service planning with a Positive Youth Development (PYD) approach. PYD develops life and leadership skills, builds self-confidence, and promotes pro-social behaviors.
  • Individual, group, and family therapy.
  • Maternal and infant support services utilizing a social worker and nurse team.
  • Formal linkages to community based medical and mental health agencies.
  • Life skills training, parenting education, and independent living preparation.
  • Individualized education, vocation, and career planning.
  • Family involvement including co-parenting outreach to fathers.
  • Transitional services following program graduation to ensure safety, wellbeing, and permanency.
