Teen Moms Anonymous

About

Teen Moms Anonymous is ministry for teen moms who are trauma survivors. Participation is open to teen girls 15-19 who are currently pregnant and parenting (with written consent from a parent or guardian) and adult women who were teen moms and are still living with unresolved trauma.

Our mission is to help teen moms who are trauma survivors

  • Heal from trauma (Adverse Childhood Experiences - ACEs) and
  • Prevent Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) with their children.

Doing so will help break the intergenerational cycle of violence, abuse, and teen pregnancy.


About the Founder

Christine M. Stroble, Ph.D.

Christine M. Stroble, Ph.D. is the Founder of Teen Moms Anonymous. In 2020, Dr. Chris founded this ministry because she knew from her research, professional, and personal experience that there was a need to minister to teen moms who are trauma survivors.

She also knew the effectiveness of community-based support group programs like Codependents Anonymous and Celebrate Recovery.

Dr. Chris had attended several CoDA meetings and gone through the 12-Step program with Celebrate Recovery. CoDA and Celebrate Recovery are community-based support group programs that bring together people, who share a common bond, to support each other in healing. In the same way, Dr. Chris wanted to create a community-based support group program to bring together teen moms, who share a common bond, to support each other in healing. She created Teen Moms Anonymous.

Dr. Chris is a former teacher and college professor. She received her Ph.D. in Curriculum & Instruction from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and although she is no longer in the classroom, she continues to publish in academia and conduct research. She conducts research in the area of improving education for teen moms (known educationally as pregnant and parenting students), and she is the author of Helping Teen Moms Graduate: Strategies for Families, Schools, and Community Organizations (Rowman & Littlefield, Feb. 2023).

Dr. Chris is a trauma survivor. She has been on her journey of healing from trauma and recovery for over 15 years and now she uses her success, experience, and wealth of knowledge to lead other trauma survivors along their journey of healing and recovery too.
