OUR VISION

THE ALEX HOUSE PROJECT ENVISIONS A WORLD IN WHICH LOW INCOME FAMILIES BENEFIT FROM COMPREHENSIVE SUPPORTS, AND YOUNG MOTHERS, IN PARTICULAR, SUCCESSFULLY TRANSITION INTO PARENTHOOD, WITH ACCESS TO PARENTING TRAINING, HIGHER EDUCATION AND EMPLOYMENT. 

OUR STORY

While employed by a neighborhood based non-profit, Red Hook resident, Samora Coles was asked to identify a need in her neighborhood and build a program for it. Having been a young mother herself, Ms. Coles recognized that young mothers around the local housing projects had little guidance and support.

Ms. Coles felt a desire to provide these young moms with support, knowledge, and skills. In February 2013, Coles’ vision became a reality. Click here to read the full story

OUR MISSION

The mission of The Alex House Project is to increase long-term family-sufficiency and independence for young mothers (25 and younger) and their children by providing parenting classes and leadership development in a safe and caring environment.

As a result of new skills and leadership opportunities, our young mothers become creators of their own social change. They inspire their communities to look beyond the business-as-usual approach, to discover new, holistic ways to support other young mothers, youth and children.
