Teen pregnancy and birth rates have been declining in recent years. However, more than 350,000 adolescents in the U.S. still become parents each year. Teen parents, like all parents, want their children to be healthy and happy but often face additional barriers to achieving these outcomes. Young families require specialized attention and services in order to be successful.
