Hope, Purpose and a Future ®


Dear Valued Customer,

On March 1, 2019, the ministry of Teen Mother Choices (TMC) will celebrate 30 years of bringing the hope of Jesus Christ to teen mothers and their children.

The first TMC program began serving teen mothers as a ministry
of Arlington Countryside Church in Arlington Heights, IL. The leadership of Arlington Countryside Church understood serving teen mothers in the
northwest suburbs of Chicago was a big undertaking and would require help and support from Christians and other churches throughout the community.
As the ministry grew, Meadows Christian Fellowship (Rolling Meadows, IL),
Alpine Chapel (Lake Zurich, IL) and Northwest Assembly of God (Mt. Prospect, IL)
were just a few of the churches that began supporting and volunteering with TMC.

The goal of TMC in 1989 was to “demonstrate the love of Jesus to teen mothers and their children.” The mission of TMC was to “empower teen moms to become independent functioning members in their communities.” The ministry of TMC was founded on
these two strategies. Through God’s faithfulness and protection, TMC has been able to build and grow from this solid foundation.  Read More
