About Teen Parents Succeeding
AtTPS we serve teen parents who live in the Wawasee School District in Kosciusko County, which includes the communities of Syracuse, Milford, and North Webster.
We offer support to young parents who are in need of child care and support in order to complete their education goals.
TPS has served the needs of teen parents for 24 years. Teen Parents Succeeding was founded in 1991 by a community member who recognized the potential ramifications of teen pregnancy for teen parents, their children, their families, and their communities. This history has produced an understanding of how the local community supports the students we serve.
The center is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. year-round in order for students to take classes and hold part-time jobs.
