Young Parent Network
Young Parent Network is designed to address the needs of pregnant and parenting youth through the age of 25, who are struggling with trauma, substance use, or the emotional, financial, and personal demands of being a parent.
The goal of the program is to increase the health, safety and well-being of Casa Kids and families by following evidence-based practices to assure a safe home environment, develop positive parenting skills, and teach healthy ways of coping with stress.
Young Parent Network is funded by the United Way of San Diego.
