Did you know that Alley’s House has served more than 1,000 teen moms over the past 20 years. The generosity of donors makes it possible for Alley’s House to continue to make a tremendous impact on teen moms in Dallas.

Annually in DFW approximately 2,500 teen mothers are in need of help. Many of these young women have been physically or mentally abused, do not have a strong support group, have dropped out of high school, need positive parenting skills, need to find a job, and so much more. These are children raising children, who, without our help, will live their lives in poverty . . . and the cycle of dependency will continue. Alley’s House is dedicated to breaking this cycle.
