HOLYOKE, MA

Holyoke has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the state, and that’s why there are places for new moms to go when they find themselves in that spot.

Care Center in Holyoke is one of the places girls can go for assistance, and the center is getting a national award tonight.

Today, first lady Michelle Obama is giving the Care Center a major grant.

The Holyoke center will receive $10,000 to keep helping young mothers.

Officials at the Care Center stress the importance of education, and 85 percent of young mothers who go through the program end up going to college.

  • My Imagination

    by Dalisa Saldana

    Going away with you
    is like going to the moon
    and coming back.

    It's like sitting
    on the beach and
    listening to the waves.

    It's like going to China
    and exploring
    other cultures.

    You are my imagination
    where everything
    is perfect,
    colorful, and happy.
