Maine Children’s Home provides support to young parents [Video]

IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN PEOPLE’S LIVES AND IS THIS WEEK’S COMMUNITY CHAMPION. MAINE CHILDREN’S HOME OFFERS A VARIETY OF SERVICES.. ADOPTION, FAMILY COUNSELING AND DONATIONS.. I GOT THE CHANCE TO MEET WITH FORMER PARTICIPANTS OF THE JOURNEY PROGRAM.. SUPPORTING YOUNG PARENTS ON THEIR PATH TO SELF- ESTEEM AND POSITIVE PARENTING. “WHEN I WAS A SOPHOMORE IN HIGH SCHOOL I FOUND OUT THAT I WAS PREGNANT AND WHEN I FOUND OUT I DROPPED OUT BECAUSE I DIDN’T WANT ANYONE TO KNOW.” ALLISON GRADY’S GRANDMOTHER HELPED ENROLL GRADY IN THE JOURNEY PROGRAM..

THERE’S A LOT MORE AWARENESS AROUND MENTAL HEALTH.” INSTEAD OF ISOLATING STUDENTS, THEY NOW PROVIDE SUPPORT IN THE SCHOOL THEY ATTEND, AT HOME AND EVEN VIRTUALLY. IN 2017.. GRADY GRADUATED. HER FAMILY RECENTLY BUILT A HOUSE. AND NOW, SHE WORKS ON THE MAINE CHILDREN’S HOME CAMPUS. “I DON’T THINK I WOULD BE A GOOD PERSON TODAY IF IT WASN’T FOR THEM.” REPORTING IN WATERVILLE, I’M TALIA CLARKE FOR MAINE’S TOTAL COVERAGE.
