FAMiLiA – Fathers And Mothers Learning & Achieving

  • Fam dad

    FAMiLiA is the only program in San Benito County designed for teen mothers and fathers while also working with their child/ren 0-5 years of age. The program seeks to increase the number of relationships within their local community and decrease the feeling of isolation for these families–a primary concern for many teen parent. FAMiLiA also addresses a large gap in services and achievement markers for an incredibly high risk and needy subgroup. These young people must maneuver adolescence with a young child while also frequently accompanied by other stressors such as: poverty, high educational needs, homelessness, substance abuse or trauma. In order to “break cycles” and assist their children, FAMiLiA provides intensive support for some of the highest risk parents in our community. YA staff member will provide case management services for (5 males) teen fathers to facilitate access to a network of services and resources.
