I had the opportunity to have first eyes on an adorable little shop located in downtown Oakfield, NY. I had a wonderful time chatting with the store owner about her goals for this little shop. You see, the store owner is affiliated with Project Stork and 100% of the profits will return to Project Stork. If you are unfamiliar with Project Stork,
“Project Stork Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. We provide guidance, support, and resources for pregnant and/or parenting teenagers without judgement. We believe that investing in teen pregnancy prevention and services for young parents supports the development of healthy families and strengthens our surrounding communities.
The formation of Project Stork Inc. is in response to Orleans and Genesee Counties disproportionately high teenage pregnancy rates. Our corporation helps teens (ages 15-21) navigate and balance pregnancy, parenting, education, and independence. Teenage parents need an avenue to empower themselves to succeed for both parent and child. Our programs encompass every phase with assistance, resources, initiatives, and support.
Project Stork Inc. is also very invested in preventing and delaying teen pregnancies and/or subsequent births. Our NYS Certified Health Educator, covers lessons on abstinence, ways to avoid and/or reduce risky sexual behaviors in order to prevent pregnancy, HIV/AIDS, and STDs/STIs; as well as how to develop and maintain healthy relationships. Our goal is to empower young people to make healthy decisions about relationships, sex, and life.”
