Although I have lived in this community for years, I was really unaware of the number of teen mothers. I found out about the Madonna's Center program from a flyer about a benefit golf tournament. I checked it out. I found that a group of people were trying very hard to make life easier for these young parents and their children. This interested me. I was very impressed that the organization, while helping the teens with essential material items, was really concerned with encouraging the parents to be good mothers and fathers , be independent, stay in school or get job training ...benefiting these young families..long term.. I was very impressed working with this group.. non judgemental, loving and very supportive of these young parents.

I became involved with Madonna's Center through my job working with teen parents. The support and kindness that was shown to the teen parents was unconditional and loving. I knew it would be a perfect extension of my work to get involved with this organization. The teens are so appreciative of the support that Madonna's center can provide. Many are back at school or have found jobs to become self sufficient in life. I am proud to be a part of this organization!

The Madonna Center is a great place to go if you can't afford something for you or your baby. All you do is fill out a form and they take care of you from there! It's wonderful, and extremely helpful. They really make sure you're taken care of and have everything you need. The people are friendly and very welcoming toward new-comers. I would definitely recomend this organization if you're in need of some help, and aren't sure what to do.

Madonna's Center has helped me out so much! When I was pregnant they threw a baby shower for a group of pregnant teens. They gave us diapers, clothes, diaper trash cans, they gave some girls cribs, they gave us laundry soap, baby bottels, pretty much every thing you need for a newborn baby. Since I had my son they have helped me out with so many things. This organization is so genorous, they will do what ever they can to help you out; and if they can't do something, they help you find the resourses you need for you situation.
I'm VERY greatful for this organization! :)

The Madonna Center has helped me out so much. They gave me diapers, laundry detergent, a bouncer, and clothes for my son. The Madonna Center is a great organization for teen moms that are in a situation where they can't afford to buy their child stuff. The Madonna Center is such a stress reliever because we know that someone is out there to help us and we are not alone.

I am the coordinator of the Young Parent Opportunity Program at Clackamas Community College. We have served over 700 young parents in the past 20 years. The Madonna's Center has provided countless numbers of our students with baby furniture, clothing, diapers, bus passes, phone cards, school supplies and anything they might need to help them succeed as families, students and community members. We are extremely grateful for their support and care for our students.

I have been working with teen-parents at the Young Parent Opportunity Program for the past eight years. The Madonna Center is a vital community partner for our program and our students and their children. When a new student enters our program, our class members enthusiastically share with her all the ways in which the Madonna Center has helped each of them. They cite examples ranging from supplying diapers, baby gates, and household items, to having a volunteer meet them at the DMV to help a teen-mom get her driver's license. Whatever the need or barrier the Madonna Center works to address it for our young parents. They deliver needed items several times a month directly to our classroom. The services of the Madonna Center are highly valued and appreciated by our students. The Center helps our students to stay in school and be better parents.

Madonna's Center fills a much needed service in our community by providing assistance to young parents and their children. Their volunteers understand the needs of this population, as well as some of the barriers young parents experience. They provide support, tangible items like diapers and strollers, and resources to teens that may not be connected to any other community services. I'm with another youth serving organization, and our clients have been accessing Madonna's Center for several years, with great success. Thank you to Madonna's Center!

I found this organization when I was looking for a way to give back to the community. Madonna's Center serves hundreds of people including: the teen parents, their children, and the volunteers (they have helped many people gain experiences and have opportunities that they would not have otherwise had. Every person at Madonna's Center is dedicated to Madonna's Center which is why it has survived completely on volunteers and donations. This is truly and organization that selflessly serves people most in need.

I HEARD ABOUT MADONNAS CENTER FROM A FRIEND, AND DECIDED TO CHECK THEM OUT. I WAS IMPRESSED TO SAY THE LEAST, WITH THE SELFLESS AND TIRELESS EFFORTS OF SO MANY FOR YOUNG MOTHERS AND THEIR CHILDREN WHO AT TIMES HAVE NO ONE ELSE TO LEAN ON. FOLKS JUST GIVING TO COMPLETE STRANGERS. IT SEEMED LIKE, NO EFFORT WAS TOO GREAT IN ASSISTING THESE YOUNG WOMAN AND THEIR YOUNG CHILDREN WITH DIAPERS, CLOTHING, WHATEVER THEY COULDN'T GET OTHER PLACES. THIS ORGANIZATION REALLY DOES FILL THE CRACKS, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY THEY TIRELESSLY JUST LOVE THEM, AS JESUS TAUGHT. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO ASSIST, DONATE TOO, ETC, PLEASE CHECK THEM OUT.
