New York State Department of Health/Health Research, Inc.
Settings: Institutions of Higher Education, High schools and Community Service Centers, and Public Awareness and Education
The New York State Department of Health, in partnership with the NY State Education Department, community colleges, school districts, and academic institutional partners will implement the Pathways to Success initiative in three communities: the Bronx, the City of Rochester, and the City of Buffalo.
Pathways to Success will:
- Identify and engage expectant and parenting students;
- Assess participants’ risks and assets;
- Link participants to community resources and follow referrals to completion; and
- Increase awareness of available supports and resources via a targeted text4baby campaign.
Each community served will have companion projects at a community college and public school district to facilitate a continuum of services for young families.
