The Adolescent Parenting Program (APP) serves pregnant or parenting teens who are 19 years of age or younger at the time of enrollment.

Pregnant adolescents may be enrolled at any stage of their pregnancy. 

The program, which is coordinated by at least one full-time staff person with a caseload of 15 participants annually, includes evidence-based home visiting and peer group education sessions. The goals of APP are as follows:

Increase the self-sufficiency outcomes for APP participants by:

Improve child welfare and school readiness outcomes for children of APP participants by:

  • Increasing incidence of positive parenting among APP participants to support their child’s cognitive development and mental health;
  • Increasing incidence of child’s physical well-being by establishing the child’s medical home and creating a safe home environment.
