OTTAWA COUNTY, MI (WHTC) -- A grant awarded by the Community Foundation of the Holland/Zeeland area to the Ottawa Youth Sexual Health Coalition has been used on a photo voice project called “One Voice.”  The purpose of the project was to show the challenges and experiences that teenagers face when raising children.  Project coordinator Heather Alberda says the goal was to raise an awareness of the problems teen parents face.  Six teens completed the program, which included one couple and four single moms.  One of the moms, Johanna Luevano of Holland says, “Once you’re a mom it’s not just about you and your happiness, but yours and your baby.  Being a normal teenager is no longer an option.  Information is available to help parents have the right kind of conversation about sex with their child at 393-5774 or miottawa.org/ochd
