Our Vision

The vision of the Alex House Project is to provide comprehensive support to young families, particularly to young mothers; promote successful transition into parenthood, reduce adverse outcomes in the areas of joblessness, and low educational achievement.

OUR STORY

While employed by a neighborhood based non-profit, Red Hook resident, Samora Coles was asked to identify a need in her neighborhood and build a program for it. Having been a young mother herself, Ms. Coles recognized that young mothers around the local housing projects had little guidance and support.

Ms. Coles felt a desire to provide these young moms with support, knowledge, and skills. In February 2013, Coles’ vision became a reality. With the support of a fiscal sponsor We-Endeavor The Alex House Project launched as its own nonprofit to provide support for young mothers in the Red Hook Houses and surrounding communities.

OUR MISSION

The mission of The Alex House Project is to increase long-term, self-sufficiency and independence for young mothers, 25 and younger, and their children by providing parenting classes and leadership development in a safe and caring environment.

As a result of the new skills and leadership roles, our young mothers also become creators of their own social change and inspire their communities to look beyond the business-as-usual approach, to discover new, holistic ways to support young mothers, youth and children.
