Who We Are

About us

The Alex House Project (AHP) is a 501 (c3) nonprofit, peer-led social service and leadership development organization that supports pregnant and parenting young mothers who reside in economically depressed neighborhoods in New York City. Our target population are young pregnant and or parenting women who are directly affected by poverty and racism, including homeless youth, LGBTQ youth, young people in new immigrant communities, and parenting youth in foster care. However, by overwhelming request, we now provide services to young dads.

TAHP focuses on the successful transition into parenthood for young parents through parenting skill-building, leadership development, access to education, and employment — four pillars of our work.  Our intent is to advance participant life outcomes in ways that impact family futures, as well as their communities.

Our Mission:

The mission of TAHP is to increase long-term, self-sufficiency and independence for young mothers, and their children by providing parenting classes and leadership development in a safe and caring environment.

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.
