Teresa Johnson, Founder of Chariti Home, grew up in a two-parent middle class family on the Illinois side of the St. Louis, Metropolitan area. She became an unwed teenage mother at the young age of 16. Today she is a wife, mother, and a nurse on a mission from God to provide stable, loving, nurturing family-style housing for unwed teenage mothers and their children. Teresa’s desire is to provide and instill the life skills and education necessary for these women to flourish and become successful in life, both as a parent and individual.
