Welcome to Our Website & Blog

LYFE is so excited to introduce you to our program’s awesome new website! LYFE’s mission is to foster a generational impact which positively influences the life outcomes of student parents and their children by providing high-quality childcare, academic guidance, and social advocacy. We know that this website will help bring us one step closer to this mission and with it we hope to gain your support in doing so.

Through our website prospective LYFE student parents will be able to find information about our program, how to enroll, and what to expect.
