Why Grandma’s House of Central Oregon:
Grandma's House of Central Oregon is the only home in the state, east of the Cascades providing a safe home for pregnant teens. Grandma's House helps these young women focus on the health and wellness of their children as well as promoting a healthy and positive lifestyle for themselves. The young women are required to pursue their high school diplomas or GED equivalent. Grandma’s House also supplies these young women with childbirth education, as well as parenting skills, and life skills. What we love about Grandma's House is that they are offering these young women a hand up and not a hand out. They like to think of themselves as a transitional home for the young women as they prepare them to go out into the world and provide for themselves and their young families. Grandma's House is equipping these young women with all the skills necessary to become successful mothers and productive citizens within our community.
