The Teen Mom Program has enabled Cierra to become a wonderful parent while still pursuing her dreams.

Cierra is a bright and charming young woman who is entering her junior year of high school this year. She is also an attentive mother to her son who is 18 months old. For many, these two roles would seem exclusive. How has she managed to handle both?

The Teen Mom Program.

One of the 17 programs at CHRISTUS Health Shreveport-Bossier funded by Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, the Teen Mom Program was a place of solace for Cierra. It was there that she learned the tools she would need to raise her adorable son. However, Cierra says the program is so much more than just a classroom.

It's a support system.

Cierra first joined the program to meet new people. These people have become like family to her as they share insights and encouragement with one another. Cierra knows that she can call on any of these other mothers whens he needs them and they can do the same with her.

It's because of your donations to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals that Cierra is raising her son and setting new goals for herself. One day she wants to become a choreographer. The Teen Mom Program, like other CMN programs at CHRISTUS Health Shreveport-Bossier, are available for families in our area to use without ever seeing a bill. And every dollar you donate in Shreveport-Bossier, stays in Shreveport-Bossier
