I have had the privilege to work with AFAM for the last 2 years. This organization is so wonderful supporting adolescent mothers who I feel is a forgotten and misunderstood population, who is so deserving of our support. Paramount Staffing and my Church (Union Evangelistic Baptist Church) has supported the Holiday Drive the last 2 years. Myself and Paramount also supported the After School Matters Advocacy Program (Career Advisory Panel Event) and really enjoyed mentoring and sharing our careers with the teen mothers. Lillian Harris is a dedicated mentor and leader for these teen mothers and I look forward for continued support of AFAM.
I've worked with Lillian, the founder of Advocates for Adolescent Mothers, for several years partnering on a fundraising event. Her dedication and passion for what she does always impresses me and it's a pleasure to work with her. Lillian truly does her part to make our world a better place and is both humble and kind while doing so.
As a fellow service provider for girls ranging in ages from 7-17 yrs. old, I totally understand the vast amount of services they require and important areas that they need in support in. I'm thankful that AFAM exists to provide sound and reliable services to cover areas specific to supporting adolescent mothers!
AFAM is an excellent organization that is committed to working with a population that is often not recognized AFAM's programs provide hope you young mothers and lets them know that people do care about them. The resources they provide these mothers are informative, as well as beneficial for themselves and their children. The mentoring offered is definatley grooming these young women into positive role models for our future teen mothers. I definately appreciate AFAM and hope they can offer services to all inner city high schools in the city of Chicago. I envision AFAM being global in the near future.
AFAM is an excellent organization that is committed to working with population that is often disserviced. AFAM partnered with our school for a Back to School Event that brought in mentors, community resources, free services, food, prizes, and fun to young parents from across the city. I look forward to continuing to partner with them as well as watch them grow.
