Review for Advocates for Adolescent Mothers, Chicago, IL, USA
I am a former adolescent mother herself, and i'm currently putting myself through college for the second time. I came to find out about AFAM from doing a paper on Overcoming Obstacles for my English class. I'm so glad i learned about this organization, and honestly, i wish that it was around when i was in my teens and . There are many NFPs that cater to teen parenthood prevention, but few that attempt to combat homelessness, poverty and abuse and promote furthering education and encouraging success the way that AFAM does. There are so many similarities in the founder and myself, and i'm so grateful that organizations like these exist, to give hope and encouragement where it is much needed. Teen moms shouldn't be the forgotten ones, the misfits, the judged. AFAM gives these girls and their families the opportunity to lead productive successful lives.
