Young Families campaign launched
BILLINGS (AP) -- A new fundraising campaign here aims to raise $1 million or more to relocate a program that helps teenage mothers stay in school.
Young Families Early Head Start provides child care, parenthood classes and other assistance.
It is housed in a Billings School District building that ceased functioning as an elementary school in 2001, for budget reasons. School district officials say rising enrollment of children in the elementary grades could require reopening the school.
The Young Families campaign began Friday with a $1,000 donation from ExxonMobil Pipeline Co.
