Does anyone know of teen mom community programs where they provide housing while you go to school? I know they exist somewhere! It doesn't matter what state. Thank you for any help!

Have you tried your local Job Corp? Other than that, there are lots of homes for pregnant teens out there.

I would google on transitional housing, add teen mom to narrow your search. If you don't care where, I would think every state has at least one transitional housing program. They aren't necessarily state run, they run mostly on grants and donations. But transitional housing is a place that you can stay for 6-ish months while you figure out your next step to independent housing. Some of them include drug/alcohol rehab. Others offer parenting and relationship classes. I found one place, called the Bosco House in Oregon a while back.

I saw you posted on another site about Second Chance Homes. This link gives a listing of all of the Second Chance Homes available in MA. It is from 2001, but you may be able to call and have someone there help find something closer to you. Good luck. There isn't too much info available so you will probably have to get someone "in the know" to help you.
