ASHFAM History

A Safe Haven For Adolescent Mothers (ASHFAM) was founded on the Love and Compassion of Jesus Christ by Shelley Tourangeau; for “The Love of Lexis”.  Shelley’s niece whom she raised; in 2013 at the age of 15, found herself in an unplanned pregnancy situation. Shelley’s niece found herself faced with some major life decisions.  In deciding to keep the baby came many hardships; financially and otherwise as she transitioned from Adolescence into Motherhood. In knowing there were other young mothers in her position; some in a tougher situations then her niece Shelley had a vision placed on her heart to do something to positively impact the lives of Adolescent Mothers in her Community.
