The Hennepin County Teen Parent Connection nurtures success for pregnant and parenting teens by creating and sustaining a system of seamless evidence-based best practices support for teen mothers, fathers and their children which:
helps them develop the means and motivation to delay second pregnancies;
provides successful educational experiences;
promotes healthy growth of the next generation through parenting support and early childhood screening and development; and
prevents teen pregnancy among children and family members of teen parents.
By working together, we will help teen mothers, fathers, and their children develop hope, purpose and self-esteem because every teen parent family has the potential to succeed. As a result of the efforts of HCTPC, teen mothers, fathers and their children will become positive assets to their communities.
