CU’s CAMP Gives Crucial Help to Adolescent Mothers

Adolescent mothers feel like any new mom. With thoughts revolving around a new baby, they hold on to hope for their child’s future. Yet, many pregnant adolescents struggle with uncertainties in life. Some deal with abusive situations at home while others struggle to stay on track with education goals. Hope is hard to grasp when a teen mom is told she will fail as a mother.

In its 20-plus year history, CAMP (Colorado Adolescent Maternity Program) has guided an estimated 5,000 young Colorado mothers through these uncertainties and into a bright future.
