Red Cross is working with both pregnant and parenting young women and men to help them develop effective parenting and living skills and to help ensure their long-term emotional well being.
Young Parents Program works to improve the capacity of very young parents to live and parent independently and reach their full potential within safe and strong resilient families through its Residential, Outreach and Aftercare stages.
Residential Stage – provides 24-hour supported accommodation and intensive case management to very young women and their children.
Outreach Stage – assists parents typically aged 16 to 24 in transitioning to semi-independent accommodation.
Aftercare Stage – maintains contact with and provides support to families who have transitioned from Outreach.
