“Morning at the Museum” to Benefit Local Teen Moms and Their Babies

UCP of Central Florida will host its annual Morning at the Museum networking and social fundraising event on May 11, 2022, at the Orlando Science Center. The event features exclusive museum access for the guests and helps provide the necessary baby supplies and support services for teenage and expectant mothers in the UCP BETA Teen Parent Connection Program.

Guests of the event will have an opportunity to hear from special guest speakers, Dr. Wendy Thomson, Director of Family and Child Support Services at UCP of Central Florida, Angela Alban, President and CEO of SIMETRI, and Kimberly Soto, of The Soto Law Office. Brunch hors d'oeuvres and Mimosas will be served and visitors can purchase colorful flower pinwheels from the Giving Garden which represent special items for the mothers and babies such as bus passes, college application fees, new baby care kits, diapers and wipes.

The program’s unique strategic partnership with Orange County Public Schools encourages teen mothers to complete their high school diploma while receiving the necessary services, resources, and counseling from our parenting experts. UCP also helps the children with early childhood development and learning programs at our UCP Downtown Charter School Campus.
