Project Description

The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) will work in the state’s two major metropolitan areas, Oklahoma City and Tulsa, to serve expectant and parenting teens. OSDH will partner with the Oklahoma Office of Juvenile Affairs (OJA) to reach expectant and parenting teens, women, fathers and their families who are currently or have recently been incarcerated. OJA will use The Nurturing Parents Program in the facilities and communities served and will contract with community-based service providers for programming and intensive case management to meet the participants' needs. OSDH will also partner with the Oklahoma City-County Health Department (OCCHD) and the Tulsa Health Department (THD) to implement the Love Notes teen pregnancy prevention curriculum, which emphasizes healthy relationship development and includes parenting skills. OSDH will also partner with Strong Tomorrows to augment their existing programming in Tulsa Public Schools to support expectant and parenting youth. Finally, OCCHD will provide social service support to participants and their families to improve their educational, health, and social outcomes, and THD will increase public awareness of the services available to expectant and parenting teens, women, fathers, and their families in the community.
