When teenagers are parents or will soon become parents, the Adolescent Family Life Program is there to help them and their babies get off to a good start and stay on the path to a bright future. We reach out to teens (girls up to age 18, boys up to age 20) who are pregnant or already parenting.

Teens work with a Social Service Worker who provides guidance and resources. Goals of the program are to help the young parents give birth to a healthy baby, complete their education, avoid future unplanned pregnancies, and develop good parenting skills.

Staff will help teen parents find services and programs available in their communities, such as: 

  • health care for themselves and their children 
  • school completion or vocational classes 
  • child care 
  • transportation 
  • financial aid 
  • legal services
  • childbirth and positive parenting classes 
  • counseling

Teens can meet with their social worker at home, school, or wherever the teens feel most comfortable.
