Breaking Social Disadvantages for Teenage Moms
Proyecto Nacer is an organization created to serve the families of young, teenage mothers and fathers, promoting success for the baby and family as a whole. They operate as a Family Incubator Model, structuring their services around the mother, baby, father and grandparents. Through this method, they are changing the lives of three generations and impacting entire communities to create a sustainable change.
“There are people with a heart of service and social responsibility who leave their mark.” - Proyecto Nacer
This incredible organization located in Puerto Rico, offers services to the parents including specialized high school curriculum, parenting and breastfeeding classes, sexual health and reproductive health education, counseling and socio-emotional courses. For the child they offer day care, preventative healthcare, speech and language therapy. The grandparents are offered social support, therapy and conversational English courses.
