Parenting Youth (PY)

 

The PY Program services are funded by a grant through the California Office of Emergency Services.

The program provides services for

  • Young parents, teen through age 25, along with their young child, birth to age 5; and
  • Where the parent has a history of involvement in the Child Welfare System or been the victim of a crime

 

PY services are designed to provide youth parents with trauma informed services, support, information and resources to help build nurturing parent-child relationships, build a network of support, and navigate their lives as both parents and as teenagers.  It is our goal to empower young families and to create the best possible start for young mothers, young fathers and their young children.

 

Services include Counseling, Crisis Intervention, and Case Management services designed to:

  • Strengthen the parent and child relationship
  • Identify and develop parenting strengths and build skills
  • Resolve co-parenting struggles (with child’s parent, grandparent, a resource parent, etc.)
  • Manage self-care and personal needs
  • Support family stability through connection with community resources

 

PY services focus on supporting young children and their parents towards the goal of helping youth become the nurturing parent essential to their child’s healthy development, while recognizing the unique needs of teen and young adult parents.  Together we can confront the challenges of young families and support young parents in creating opportunities for themselves and their families.
