Gerard House and Moving On To Motherhood

The Gerard House Program provides stable housing and supportive services to pregnant and parenting teens to give them and their babies a healthy start. Our team of case managers and empowerment counselors work with each young mother to offer care that is safe, supportive and nurturing – equipping them with the skills and knowledge necessary to become effective parents to their babies and lead productive and independent lives.

Gerard House also complements our Moving on to Motherhood (MOM) program, which provides targeted case management, counseling and crisis intervention, parenting education, life skills development, academic support and other services for more than 50 pregnant and parenting youth.
