The Care Center’s Impact on Teen Mothers

Since opening its doors in 1986, The Care Center has worked with thousands of teen mothers and their families as they continue their education and move toward greater self-awareness and economic stability.

In the 2013/14 school year:

  • 20 of our 60 current Care Center High School Equivalency students are either currently enrolled in a class for college credit, or already have credits.
  • 21 students graduated in June, having earned their high school equivalency certificates during the course of the year.
  • All 2014 grads have plans to go on to college.
  • More than 190 Care Center alumnae were supported by our Transition staff,
  • 105 Care Center graduates matriculated in college,
  • 16 women received 6 credits from Bard College in The Care Center’s Clemente Course in the Humanities
