The Adolescent Family Life Program has four major goals:
- Prevent subsequent pregnancies to teenage parents.
- Have teen parents graduate from high school.
- Help pregnant and parenting teens to have healthy babies.
- Prevent pregnancies among siblings of pregnant teens and teen parents.
Pregnant and parenting teens, up to the age of 18, are referred into the program. Case managers work with eligible clients, their families and children through visits in the home every month. Case managers provide assistance with education regarding pregnancy, labor and delivery, postpartum care, breast feeding, and child health; parenting skills; support with goals for completion of high school education and employment; Medi-Cal, WIC, and Cal-Learn application assistance; counseling and substance abuse prevention services; and referral to local doctors/clinics, and agencies as needed.
