TYME to Empower Ministry (active 501C3) serves as an emotional and motivational support team for teenage parents and their families. By motivating and educating the teen parents to be the
best parents and students they can be, we are building a strong foundation for the lives of the young parents and their generations that follow.
In addition, TYME provides assistance to teenage parents with their baby's basic needs. If further
resources are needed (that we may not have) we will provide contact information of other
organizations that might be able to help. In the past TYME has donated: baby clothes, formula,
car seats, strollers, bouncers, books, school supplies, bassinets, play pens and much more. All of
this made possible due to the extremely generous donations from the community (individuals and
TYME has been the proud recipient of the Make a Difference Award (awarded by Roy MAAS and
