This webinar will help legal aid advocates better understand the range of services available to pregnant and parenting teens, as well as highlight some of the unique concerns and considerations when working with this population.
Specifically, the training will cover:
– public health coverage options available for pregnant teens as well as parenting teens and their babies;
– services available to pregnant and parenting teens, including public benefits, housing, and education support;
– family law issues such as support and custody; and
– safety issues legal aid advocates must keep in mind such as confidentiality, CPS involvement, and the intersection of family law rights and safety.
