The Young Parents Project uses a national home visiting model to address the overall health and developmental needs of teen parents and their children involved in the juvenile court system. The project provides weekly home visiting support to the teen mother and baby by a professional team consisting of a Social Worker, Nurse and Infant Mental Health Specialist. The Social Worker links the teen to services in the community and assists the teen in navigating the court system. The Nurse assists in promoting the health of the teen and baby. The Infant Mental Health Specialist provides guidance to promote the development of the young mother and child, parenting and the parent-child relationship.
