Teen parents (age 20 or younger as of September 1st of the current year) may request to join our “Parent Life Young Parents” group on Facebook.  This group is private and is for teen parents only in order to protect their privacy and keep it a safe place for engaging with their peers and trained mentors.                                             




Parent Life is funded by financial gifts from people in our community

Parent Life seeks out volunteers who are inspired by their Christian faith to serve young families.  Volunteers serve as leaders/mentors working directly with young parents, as child care taking care of young parents' children, or working at a special event such as Spa Night or Christmas Party.  Other opportunities to serve may include assistance with our Baby Boutique and various practical needs that may arise. If you are interested in pursuing volunteer opportunities with Parent Life, please contact Maryn Glender at (541) 517-2169 or
