Parents Too Soon: Illinois' Response to Children Having Children.
Randolph, Shirley; Bogdanich, Radmila
The nation's first coordinated, statewide teenage pregnancy prevention and support program, Parents Too Soon (PTS), is an interagency effort which accomplishes its goals through an integrated, cooperative effort and provides critical medical, social, nutritional, educational, and vocational services to male and female youth between 10 and 20 years of age. Clients may be parents, expectant parents, or at risk of becoming parents too soon. During fiscal year 1989, more than 74,132 teens were reached through direct services and 135,046 received community education. This report describes the PTS program in terms of goals, achievements, organizational issues, services, results, and future directions. (RH)
