Alley’s House is a powerful support system for teen moms to focus on their personal and professional goals as they work toward independence. Here we provide a nurturing, stable environment to help young mothers overcome obstacles and become thriving women.
Alley’s House incentive program allows teen mothers to earn needed items for their children and themselves. Through the Pathway to Independence Program, teen mothers earn Alley’s House points as they accomplish their goals. Points are then used to acquire items weekly from the Alley’s House Boutique. Due to the size of our Boutique, we are limited in the scope of accepted items. Donations accepted during regular office hours Monday – Friday from 9 am – 5 pm.
