The Maternity Home is one of YES' newest programs. This program provides services to runaway and homeless youth, ages 16 to 21 who are pregnant or parenting and may not otherwise be able to access services. Residents live in a family-style residence for a maximum of 18 months and work closely with case managers to set and accomplish several goals.
The Maternity Home is designed to provide an environment in which youth are able to develop the ability to function independently in the community. The program offers:
Life skills training
Mental health counseling
Medical screening and referrals
Pregnancy and parenting instruction
