The Teen Parent Program (TPP), a program of Open Pantry Community Services, Inc., is a residential program for teenage parents and their children who are pregnant and/or parenting and in need of a safe place toÂ live.
Open Pantry has been operating this program since 1995.Â
TPP is designed to meet the immediate and long-term needs of teenage parents and their children.
The program is designed to assist teen parents in accessing resources, both their own inner resources and those supportive services available in the community.
This design not only helps participants to meet their needs, but also to foster long-term goals of self-sufficiency and independence as well as realistic plans to achieve these goals.
Mission Statement: With humanity and dignity, we endeavor to provide meaningful services and processes which can assist people who are hungry, homeless, or disadvantaged to improve the quality of their lives.
