Young Families Program
About the Clinic
The Young Families Program is a health-care service for adolescent mothers and their children. Our program acts as the medical home for both the mother and infant and will follow the family until the child/children reaches two to three years of age. The services provided include comprehensive health care, management of acute/chronic illness, nutrition or feeding concerns, parenting education and support, sexual health, psychosocial/mental health support, and co-ordination of care with community partners.
