Teen Mother & Baby Program

Pregnant/Parenting Teens - The Children's Village

Grace House is the home of St. Adolescent mothers are often at higher risk of pregnancy complications, including premature and low birth-weight deliveries. In Grace House, expecting mothers receive comprehensive prenatal care to ensure a healthy delivery for mom and baby. We schedule and transport residents to all of their routine and specialized health care appointments. Every Grace House resident receives on-site nursing support, one-on-one assistance with newborn care, and prenatal and post-partum wellness care from our partners, Providence Hospital and Fort Lincoln Medical Center. Through daily parenting support and weekly parenting skills classes from our Child Care Center staff, new moms learn how to properly care for themselves and their infants. Learn more about St.

Teen Mothers

Our two small, community-based group homes offer teen mothers and their babies a stable place to live while they prepare for independence. Located on tree-lined streets in Queens, each house is a temporary home to three moms and their babies. The houses feature private bedrooms for each pair, computer rooms, playrooms, and large backyards with picnic benches and playground equipment. Caring for an infant or toddler is hard work.
We offer the program to mothers between the ages of 16 and 20 years old who are in the foster care system or with the Department of Juvenile Services. Damamli is licensed to provide services to a maximum of 24 mothers and can accept mothers who are pregnant or have up to two children. While in the foster home, they work with a foster parent and case manager to begin developing a plan for their future and working on the steps necessary to accomplish their goals. Foster parents in our Damamli program work closely with our teen mothers to help them build critical parenting and independent living skills.
