    PISD School Age Parent Program

    The mission of the PISD School-Age Parent Program (SAPP) is to provide the practical and emotional support expectant and parenting teens need to stay in school, remain on track for graduation, be the best parents they can be, and prepare for a bright future.  Educational support (including supplemental classes in childbirth, child development, infant care, and parent education) is provided for students as they transition from pregnancy, to birth, and beyond.

    CRUMC has partnered with the SAPP for many years and for the last several years to provide other resources including donations of needed baby/toddler items. There are 45 students in the program this year, 10 of them currently expecting babies with 3 babies due in September – 2 boys & 1 girl. Most of these students come from economically challenging circumstances and lack the financial ability to meet the needs of their children. Any donations you can provide are greatly appreciated.

    Detailed information about SAPP can be found HERE

    Please contact CRUMC SAPP Mission Coordinator Mary Terhune with questions.


    Please send/drop off items directly to the Program at: Akeisha Shipman, Guinn Special Program Center, 2221 Legacy Drive, Plano TX 75023, which is located at the NW Corner of Legacy & Custer.
