The Pregnant and Parenting Youth Initiative (PPYI) is a YSFS program that serves young parents and their families. We offer health interventions, comprehensive case management, and classes regarding reproductive health, pregnancy and childbirth, and parenting.
We focus on proactive and preventative healthcare for both young parents and non-parenting youth through health interventions which address safe sex, anatomy, consent, self-esteem, boundaries, decisions & consequences, breaking negative cycles, domestic violence, embryo through adult brain development, parental skill & attachment parenting, creating healthy new behaviors, and holistic health. The PPYI program collaborates with all other YSFS programs to address teen pregnancy prevention, STD/AIDS prevention, domestic violence prevention & intervention, sexual assault prevention & intervention, prenatal care, education, housing, healthcare, poverty, early child development, and other services for pregnant and parenting youth.
Case management, health interventions and education are offered to all YSFS clients and any at-risk pregnant or parenting youth throughout the Santa Fe community.
