Annual Policy Meeting 2015
Helping Teen Parents and Their Children Succeed:
Working Across Disciplines for Effective Services
On April 27th, 2015 the Hennepin County Teen Parent Connection hosted our 2015 Annual Policy Meeting themed Helping Teen Parents and their Children Succeed: Working Across Disciplines for Effective Services. Together with the Community Action Partnership of Suburban Hennepin (CAPSH) we welcomed our guest speakers and 100 other supporters that represented 50 different community based agencies who joined us for a lively discussion covering various pilot programs, all day preschool, infant and toddler mental health and much, much more.
The Hennepin County Teen Parent Connection would like to extend a special thank you to all of our guest speakers and supporters for sharing their time and commitment to pregnant and parenting teen mothers, fathers and their children. Your passion, connectedness, and strength as individuals and organizations is what drives our work forward.
