One of the unique ministries here at Georgia Baptist Children's Home is our Maternity Program (TLC˛) - an outreach to unwed teen mothers. This is a residential program that gives these young mothers-to-be a safe place to live while receiving medical care, spiritual counseling, parenting classes, continuing education and most importantly - HOPE. Some of the girls in this program come to us because they've made some bad choices. Some come to us because they were given no choice. No matter what their circumstances, we welcome all of these young ladies into our home and hearts and help them begin rebuilding their lives of the foundation of Jesus Christ.
TLC˛ has the capacity to serve eight residents. Services offered to the young mothers through the TLC˛maternity program include: Residential care, Social Work Services, Spiritual Counseling, Psychological Counseling, Psychiatric Services, Prenatal Care, Delivery at Piedmont-Fayette or Piedmont-Newnan, Child birth classes, Parenting Skill training, Adult living skills, Individualized Education Program.
