When teens become parents too soon, sometimes their families turn their backs.  Teenage Moms often become homeless, kicked out of the house by angry parents while the unemployed teenage Dad feels helpless to do something for his baby's mother. How are young mothers affected when they are pregnant with no where to go? How do young fathers feel when they suddenly are faced with responsibility for a life? What happens to the children born to teen parents? Felicia Townsend, Founder of Dyvine Destiny For Teen Moms talks about how her organization is helping teen parents to cope by providing needed support.  She explains how others can help.
