A Home Away From Home is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2011 by Virginia Garcia. As a 17 year old pregnant teen, Virginia found herself in a position with nowhere to go and no one to turn to for help. There were no resources available and no programs for girls in her situation. She vowed that one day she would start a program for pregnant teens so that no other young woman would have to experience the pain and hopelessness she felt at that time. A Home Away From Home will provide a safe loving environment to young women that feel no one loves them, we will instill hope where hopelessness has become commonplace. Upon completion of our program each teen girl will have acquired the skills to be independent young women, successful parents and productive members of society.
