Project Description

The Children's Trust of South Carolina will implement the Community Support for Young Parents (CSYP) program to improve the health, well-being, and economic self-sufficiency of expectant and parenting teens and young adults (ages 15-24) and their children, with a focus on serving young fathers. CSYP will operate in six South Carolina counties: Charleston, Darlington, Florence, Horry, Richland, and Spartanburg. Children’s Trust will provide overall project direction and leadership to a state-level team that includes the South Carolina Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, the Center for Fathers and Families, and the South Carolina Rural Health Research Center. Guided by state-level organizations, local implementation partners in each of the six counties will establish partnerships with health centers, schools, and community-based organizations to provide expectant and parenting teens with health, self-sufficiency, education, employment, and parenting services and referrals. In addition, Children’s Trust will increase awareness of CSYP services among expectant teens and young parents and the organizations that provide them with services.
