News: Teen Moms Find Future at Project Home Indy

In this article in the March 1, 2015 Indianapolis Star, Maureen Gilmer tells the story of Project Home Indy and its impact on teen moms in our community. An excerpt:

On the Near Northside, in a tidy two-story house, lives a family. Five teenage girls, four babies and a rotating cast of adults. The girls aren't related, except by experience.
The house is ruled by discipline, support and love.
Project Home Indy opened in 2011 as a refuge for homeless young women who are pregnant or parenting a young child. Together, they attend school, do their homework and raise their babies until it's time for them to make their own way in the world.
