Pregnancy Prevention + Parenting Support
The Annie E. Casey Foundation's Jim Casey Youth Opportunities Initiative invites its sites to apply for a small grant ($25,000 to $40,000) to strengthen existing or to support new services, practices or policy work related to the Initiative's young parent indicator. Successful applicants will utilize approaches that recognize and strengthen the developmental needs of both parent and child.
The positive implications of decreasing and delaying unplanned and untimely pregnancies among youth and young adults in care are universally recognized. The Jim Casey Initiative also believes that, in the event of an unplanned or untimely pregnancy, there is a collective responsibility to provide services designed to build the capacity of those that decide to parent.
