Amarillo, TX - With teen pregnancy rates in Curry County among the highest in the state, resources for young moms in Clovis are becoming even more limited.
After 15 years of helping young moms, the Teen Parent Program in Clovis is being forced to shut its' doors. The program is run by the Eastern Plains Council of Government and is funded by state and federal agencies, which can no longer afford to provide the support.
The Teen Parent Program has taught dozens of young moms and dads all about child care and requires them to be enrolled in school in order to stay in the program. 19-year-old Brittany Barrows joined the program before she gave birth to her now, almost two year old son, Zaide.
