GAIL HARDER MEMORIAL FUND
Gail served as a mentor for our program for 20 years. Last November, Gail went home to be with Jesus. CYM is excited to carry on her legacy through the Gail Harder Memorial Fund. The Gail Harder Memorial Fund awards scholarships to moms who are returning to school later in life to further their education. If you would like to continue Gail's legacy, click below.
Teens Moms started 15 years ago with the hope of making a big impact on young mother’s lives.
Each year the Teen Mom programs serve more than 20 young mothers throughout the communities of Reedley, Orange Cove, and Dinuba, California.
CYM also partners with generous donors for our Transitional Program that provides support for mothers over the age of 18.
CYM is able to equip teen mothers with a firm foundation in Christ and develop a positive outlook on life. This provides a stable and constructive environment for their children.
BENEFITS OF THE PROGRAM
Support and guidance from facilitators and other teen mothers
Learn new skills to plan a positive future for themselves and their child
A chance to earn a scholarship towards advancing education
Weekly meal boxes, diapers, and food for baby
Between the ages of twelve & nineteen years old
Pregnant or have a child
Enrolled in school or planning to re-enroll (high school, independent studies, adult ed., etc.)
Through the support of donations and volunteers, CYM is able to host a yearly weekend retreat at Calvin Crest.
The weekend consists of group sessions, worship, outdoor activities, crafts, prayer, and family time. It provides a weekend that most young mothers would never experience outside of the Teen Mom Program.
