FamilyWorks provides a free program for teen parents in collaboration with the North Seattle Family Center. We strive to promote the positive growth of teen parents by facilitating peer support groups, offering parenting classes/ workshops, and providing the opportunity to participate in a home visiting program. We also provide individual one on one time in which a teen parent can receive needed advocacy, guidance, encouragement, and support. Inherent in the program is the goal of providing teen parents with information about community resources and the skills to access them.
The teen parent support group meets at the North Seattle Family Center twice a month on Wednesday evenings**.
