Maternal, Child, and Adolescent Health

The Adolescent Family Life Program has four major goals:

  • Prevent subsequent pregnancies to teenage parents.
  • Have teen parents graduate from high school.
  • Help pregnant and parenting teens to have healthy babies.
  • Prevent pregnancies among siblings of pregnant teens and teen parents.

Pregnant and parenting teens, up to the age of 18, are referred into the program. Case managers work with eligible clients, their families and children through visits in the home every month. Case managers provide assistance with education regarding pregnancy, labor and delivery, postpartum care, breast feeding, and child health; parenting skills; support with goals for completion of high school education and employment; Medi-Cal, WIC, and Cal-Learn application assistance; counseling and substance abuse prevention services; and referral to local doctors/clinics, and agencies as needed.

The goal of the CLPPP is to prevent lead poisoning in children by pro-active action to educate the public regarding the hazards of lead poisoning, and to provide a comprehensive response to support lead burdened children, their families and the community.

The CLPPP outreach and education activities include: assembling quarterly Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Task Force meetings, working with Children's Health and Disability Prevention program providers to increase the number of children screened for lead poisoning, providing outreach information at local health fairs, and providing education to high-risk groups.

The goal of the Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program is to improve the health of low-income pregnant women and give their babies a healthy start in life. Medi-Cal eligible women receive a comprehensive prenatal risk assessment and services to address problems identified including comprehensive prenatal care, health education, nutrition services, and psychosocial support for up to 60 days after delivery of their infants.
