Parents as Teachers: Young Mom Pursues Her Dreams
Vanessa has come a long way since beginning the Parents as Teachers (PAT) program in 2016. At the time, the teen mom was seeking guidance on how to give her infant daughter the best start to life. Nearly three years later, both mom and daughter are thriving.
Parents as Teachers provided guidance, support and resources to help Vanessa understand and navigate the early years of her daughter’s life. Not only did PAT teach her about her daughter’s developmental milestones and how to keep her healthy, it also helped the young mom get through the challenging times, which she struggled with due to her age and lack of experience.
