What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

ELECT

ELECT staff work with 16 school districts and sites in Bucks County to provide education and services necessary for teen parents to continue and complete their education while parenting. The program offers support to ensure academic and  parenting success.  Case workers meet weekly with the students and also provide home visits to ensure school and parenting success.  A full-time fatherhood educator works with the teen dads to help them stay in school and graduate, and an education & career specialist  provides workshops for the teen parents to prepare for employment and training opportunities after high school.

Population(s) Served

An 8-week prenatal program taught by trained instructors for expectant moms, fathers-to-be, and their families.  The program is specifically designed for adolescents ages 14-26 to prepare them for the physical and emotional changes during pregnancy. The goal of the program  is to ensure prenatal care and increase the opportunity for healthy pregnancies and births.

Population(s) Served

Building the Family - CHC's parent support group - is administered by trained instructors and case managers and is offered on a monthly basis as a continuum for young parents and their children. This program offers professional, personal and peer support. The goal of the program is to teach parenting skills and coordinate access to other community resources.

Population(s) Served

CHC offers two community education Programs:
- Teen Parent Awareness -  a decision-making program designed for middle and high school students to motivate teens to avoid untimely pregnancy.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

CHC offer free programs in schools during the day and at hospitals and medical centers in the evening—which include prenatal and childbirth education, monthly parent support groups, school-based programs, and one-on-one sessions and home visits as needed. The results are significant:

• 100% of CHC's mothers received prenatal care (only 85% nationally)
• 2% of CHC's mothers gave birth to low birth weight babies (national average is 10%)
• Only 2% of births are pre-term (national rate is 13%)
• The repeat pregnancy rate is 2% (national rate is 25%)
• 80-90% of CHC clients stay in high school and graduate (national rate is just 40%).

CHC provides free childbirth classes, support groups, career counseling and other advocacy services to teens at dozens of locations throughout Bucks and Montgomery Counties. Through a practical and direct approach, our programs brings the following to our community:
• Support for pregnant teens to complete their high school program/GED and develop job skills to overcome barriers to employment to secure stable employment at a living wage
• Education of teen parents regarding preventive health practices to prevent costly medical problems • Education of pregnant teens to help prevent recurring pregnancies
• Education of adolescent parents regarding basic family skills so that their children will be able to enter school ready to learn.

1. Strong staff and Board support
2. Community networks with hospitals, agencies, schools and health care providers
3. Local government recognition and support
4. State-funded ELECT program

Would like to hire another fatherhood coordinator and career specialist.
Would like to hire another full time case manager to help with home visits.
Would like to hire a full time development director.
Would like to hire a doula to provide doula services for clients.
