Teen MOPS of Kitsap
Kitsap Teen MOPS is a partnership between Teen MOPS, Westsound Youth For Christ, and Summit Avenue Presbyterian. Teen MOPS utilizes education and mentoring to promote positive life change, resulting in healthier families to help break the cycle of teenage pregnancy.
1st & 3rd Mondays 5:30 - 7:30 pm
MOPS is fun, educational, and helps young moms build relationsips with women who love them. We also intentionally focus on community building during our group times allowing for natural support systems to form.
Mentoring: We match one experienced parent with one of our young parents. As authentic relationship develops, we earn the right to speak into their life. Here is where we often see the most significant life changes happen, including the transformation that comes through a relationship with Jesus.
MOPShop: Our parents have the opportunity to earn Baby Bucks through positive life improving activities such as attending group, meeting with their mentor, attending school consistently, etc. Our parents can then spend these Baby Bucks in our MOPShop that is filled with baby equipment and supplies. The MOPShop is stocked completely through community donation of new and gently used items.
What is the need?
In Kitsap County, 1 in every 22 girls ages 15 - 19 will get pregnant this year. Of the babies born to teen parents, 83% will end up becoming a teen parent themselves unless something is done.
YFC and Teen MOPS are standing in the gap with these expecting and parenting teens. We believe the cycle can be changed...we believe these lives can be transformed. Will you join us in sharing God's love with these young people?
