The Adult Parenting Program (APP) uses state guidelines to serve teen parents and their babies. The goal of APP is to help teen parents:

  • Prevent subsequent pregnancies
  • Complete their education with a high school diploma or GED
  • Acquire and develop job skills
  • Improve parenting abilities to foster babies’ cognitive development
  • Create a safe home environment

 

Services Offered:

  • Bi-Monthly home visits
  • Group meetings
  • Mentors
  • College tours
  • Group field trips

 

Through individual and peer group support, adolescents learn about health and social factors that impact their families such as education, nutrition, prenatal care, positive parenting, child neglect and abuse, breastfeeding, safe housing, financial planning, and job readiness skills.
