Mission Statement


Fristers, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty and abuse within the teen parent population by providing education, access to resources, role models and support to teenage mothers and their children.

Description


To accomplish our mission, Fristers offers the LifeCoach weekly program for teen moms, pregnant or parenting, within the ages of 13-24, and the Kidsters Childcare and School Readiness program for their children, ages 0-7, at 6 chapter locations throughout Orange County. LifeCoach addresses the unique needs of teen mothers and provides them with education, access to resources, role models and support. Participants attend a 32 week program that includes classroom teaching, relationship-building activities, one-to-one coaching, and group projects and field trips. The Kidsters Childcare and School Readiness Program is designed to nurture and teach the children, while giving teen mothers a safe childcare option so that they can fully devote themselves to learning and growing during the LifeCoach program. Kidsters provides a loving, safe and supervised environment for children, and promotes growth for each child socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically, to help prepare them for Kindergarten and for life. In our ten years of work we have been privileged to help hundreds of young moms graduate from high school, get driver's licenses, get jobs, and become loving, caring and responsible parents to their children. And we have been an integral part of their children's growth and development.
