Adolescent Family Life
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
- financial aid
- legal services
- childbirth and positive parenting classes
Teens can meet with their social worker at home, school, or wherever the teens feel most comfortable.
