Creating Healthy Futures for Teen Families
Margaret Hudson Program - Accepting Applications for Spring
For more than 40 years, the Margaret Hudson Program has helped pregnant and parenting teens complete high school, deliver healthy babies, and gain valuable parenting and life skills. The Margaret Hudson Program is a non-profit,Tulsa Area United Way agency dedicated to providing young teen families the skills necessary to be healthy, self-sufficient members of the community. Pregnancy and parenting bring many new and unexpected challenges to an adolescent’s life, but with encouragement and support, teen families can and do succeed.
Students of the Margaret Hudson Program can continue their education in a setting with other teens who share similar concerns and interests, on a separate campus of the Broken Arrow Public School District. MHP works to keep pregnant and parenting teens anchored in school, where they also enhance maternal and infant health, prevent child abuse, and provide vocational training. MHP offers young teen families an opportunity to move forward with their lives in a positive manner and can help turn a life-changing challenge into a life opportunity.
The Margaret Hudson Program is now accepting applications for the spring semester of the 2012-2013 school year. Pregnant and parenting teens that live in Broken Arrow, or can transfer into the Broken Arrow Public School District are eligible to attend.
