HOPE FOR NEW YORK
Inwood House
The East Side

Inwood House is a residence for pregnant and parenting teens who are homeless, in foster care, or aged out of foster care.

Mission: Inwood House helps teens take charge of their lives by facilitating development of life skills and self-esteem, making responsible decisions, and avoiding teenage pregnancy. They provide a continuum of care for pregnant and parenting teens in foster care that builds on their strengths and moves them toward self-sufficiency, along with providing an environment of hope, guidance and opportunity.

Vision: Inwood House believes in and values the potential and promise of all young people. They envision a time when every young person has the confidence, ability and optimism necessary to make active, responsible decisions about the future and whether to become a parent.

OUR PARTNERSHIP
Our volunteers provide Inwood House mothers and their children a calm and fun space to explore arts and crafts over the weekend, when residents have a break from programming in the home and school and work responsibilities outside it.
Inwood House provides pregnant or parenting teens aged out of foster care with educational and childcare support as they encourage them to become independent and healthy adults.
Our female volunteers share their own experiences with residents as they create together. Moms with kids and young professionals alike, our volunteers have made everything from cupcakes to painted flower pots with residents.

Prayers for Families in Crisis
December 20, 2016
Children who spend time in foster care often face serious challenges—teen pregnancy, homelessness, incarceration—later in life. Let us come to the Father on behalf of these children and their families knowing that our God is a Father to the fatherless and a protector of widows. We invite you to pray with us.
