Connect and help other new moms by sharing your own experiences.


To support the Ministry of Kindred Life and its teen mothers, children and families by raising awareness, volunteering time, and fundraising. Kindred Life Alumni strive to use our talents, influence and experience to empower fellow members through building relationships, mutual support and encouraging spiritual growth.

The Alumni Group will be referred to as such and as Kindred Life graduates out new moms from the program in May 2015, the group will be known more formally as the Kindred Life Alumni Group. Former graduates from the TMC program in Northern Illinois are encouraged and invited to stay connected with the ministry alongside Kindred Life graduates. We will continue to provide a place for the former graduates of Teen Mother Choices, Northern Illinois program to connect (and also encourage them to serve as opportunity arises with the TMC International Program) so they can continue connecting, serving and growing with the Ministries that are dear to their hearts.
