The Joe Coors Hope House Classic, July 26, raised a record $227,000 for Hope House. The Arvada-based nonprofit helps teen moms achieve self sufficient lives for themselves and their children.
This year's guest speaker at the golf tourney luncheon was Hannah Jernigan. She was just 17 years old when she found out she was pregnant. Determined to break the cycle of poverty that had defined her life, Jernigan began participating in the self-sufficiency programs at Hope House of Colorado. She finished Parenting and Healthy Relationships classes at Hope House, and with the support of the College & Career Program at Hope House, she enrolled at Community College of Denver. Jernigan recently earned her Associate's Degree at CCD and also works as a Paralegal at Pesch Law Office while taking care of her daughter Coralaine, 3, who has special needs and is thriving.
As a college graduate, Jernigan has defied the odds as only 2 percent of teen moms will earn a college degree. She will begin studying Law at the University of Colorado at Denver this fall.
