Maternity Group Home (MGH)

MGH is a program for pregnant and parenting mothers and their children, which focuses on providing community supportive transitional living support, life skills, and parenting/individual therapy.

The Maternity Group Home Program consists of a residential site located in the community.  Each youth shares an apartment with their child and another parenting youth.  The youth are under the supervision of a live-in Resident Advisor.  The MGH program provides individualized instruction in life skills and appropriate child development and parenting.  In addition, there is an on-site clinic which provides health education and preventative services for the youth and their children
