"Willing To Strive For The Success Of Our Community"
Blessings Working Together is one of few organizations in metro Atlanta devoted exclusively to the needs of parenting adolescents and their children. We provide counseling and life skills services with an additional focus on hands-on parent education and connections to community resources to help ensure that expectant and parenting families up to age 25 have access to all available health, education, and social services for which they are eligible. By investing in teen parents today, Blessings Working Together protects the future of two generations: the young parents themselves and their babies. Supporting adolescent parents to get an education, acquire job skills, improve parenting abilities and prevent future pregnancies helps them become self-sufficient and better able to support themselves and their families.
Blessings Working Together’s mission is to provide a supportive, nonjudgmental environment where teen mothers who are at risk for homelessness can receive counseling, learn parenting and life skills, and connect with partner resources to support independence.
Our goal is to collectively work to improve the lives of young, overlooked and impoverished families to alleviate the pressures of financial, economic, and familial barriers. Through our programs and practices, we aim to mitigate and eliminate their risk for homelessness, build stronger families, and empower communities to thrive, one family or person, at a time. The focus of our programs is to identify and address their risk factors and facilitate a smooth and successful transition to self-sustainability and independence. Our program’s focus areas include: Life-Skills Training, Housing, Education, Employment and Career, Economic Mobility, Healthy Children and Families, and Community-Life Functioning. BWT programs will not only provide life skills to those below the poverty line, but they will also ensure that each person gains an increased self-awareness, confidence, and improvement in their ability to excel academically, perform a job effectively, engage as parents and peers, manage finances, maintain safe living standards, ultimately increasing in their motivation to succeed.
