MIHP provides support to promote healthy pregnancies, good birth outcomes, and healthy infants.
In 2011, CSSP issued a compendium of evidence-informed programs for meeting the needs of expectant and parenting foster youth and their children. This document has helped inform each of the four jurisdictions' work. Today, based on what we learned from both these four sites, and from tracking other states’ efforts, we are re-issuing the compendium with updated information about program effectiveness.
The purpose of this guide is twofold:
1) To enhance the knowledge of evidence-informed and promising practices that
address the needs of expectant and parenting youth in foster care and their children
2) To provide a comprehensive set of resources for jurisdictions interested in
achieving safety, permanency and well-being for these young families
