Supporting the Unaccompanied Students Initiative’s (USI) plan to develop a home for teen mothers who chose life for their unborn child creates the opportunity for lasting resiliency toward lifelong success. Pregnant teens need 24/7 support to heal from the traumas that led to their homelessness. Three years from now, USI will build a home providing provide housing and support services to expectant teenage mothers in Cheyenne. USI will utilize a holistic approach to help teen expectant mothers make enduring, positive changes in their lives. The Program will provide basic life necessities of housing, food, and clothing, in addition to life skills, education and training in financial literacy, parenting and counseling. USI’s experience currently demonstrate that when young people remain with us for an extended period and feel supported in our care, the more likely they are to achieve independence.
