The people at CAPCC have been there for the hardest time of my life and I’m so grateful for them being here for me!
A nurturing home, supporting healthy pregnancy and positive parenting.
The Aerie is a two phase maternity home program for pregnant teens and young women offering a nurturing home, supporting healthy pregnancy and positive parenting. The Aerie, which is staffed 24/7, has the capacity for up to 11 women and their infants. Residents who meet the eligibility criteria enter phase 1 of the program during their pregnancy and move into phase 2 when their infant is approximately 6 months of age. Phase 2 residents who continue to meet program outcomes are invited to stay until their child is approximately 2 years of age. While in Phase 2, clients will continue to pursue education and/or employment pursuits while continuing to strengthen their parenting and life skills.
