Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a comprehensive and holistic parenting program for adolescents utilizing community assets. Although the number of teenage pregnancies has declined in the past decade, California still has the highest rate of teenage pregnancy in the United States. Teenage mothers face adverse risk factors that may pose a challenge in their ability to provide adequate parenting, stable income, and support to ensure the well being of their children. The intention of the proposed program is to fill fragmented gaps in current services, provide positive long-term affects utilizing community resources, and improve the quality of life for teenage mothers and their children. The project included identifying potential funding sources and completing a grant proposal designed for Solidarity located in Fullerton, California. The identified potential funding source is the Hearst Foundation.
