Have you ever donated to an organization and felt like your money disappeared? It can be frustrating to donate your time and money to a cause when you don’t know what it’s going towards.

We understand how difficult and deflating it is to give to something when you can’t see the difference you’re making.

At Parenteen, your time, energy, and resources are making a generational impact, reaching beyond the parents we directly help.


Empower, educate and advocate for young parents through life’s uncertainties with grace, faith and unconditional love by:


Providing relationally-driven programs and empowering both teen and young parents with the truth of their worth and the hope that Jesus brings.


Empowering both teen and young parents to succeed in building healthy family foundations through educational opportunities.


Advocating for both teen and young parents and influencing the next generation by intentionally engaging their children.

“Parenteen has been a great support to me, like a family I never had.”
-Young parent participant
