Pregnant and Parenting Teens

National Health Foundation helps pregnant and parenting teens to finish their education and avoid a second, unplanned pregnancy. Through this free, educational program delivered within the walls of inner city schools, over 500 students (both female and male) have successfully finished high school, received a GED diploma or have gone on to college. PPT support includes weekly learning sessions, guest speakers, personal counseling, information about pregnancy, delivery and infant care, as well as connections to public resources. Funded by the Harold Edelstein Foundation, the students know this service by the name, "Harold Cares About Your Future.">
