GD Association Programs
Teens must agree to complete their high school education. We support them with case management, day care for their babies, parenting classes and budgeting classes. They have to participate in goals and objective meetings with staff weekly. They are also supported in taking vocational training classes, enrolling in college and getting employment.
We support the teens with getting medical and dental examinations and care for themselves and medical care for their babies.
The teens are required to complete drug and alcohol classes and domestic violence classes.
