GENESIS staff (consisting of social workers, parent educators, and a nurse) provides pregnant and parenting teens with a continuum of case management services to assist them throughout their pregnancy and in the early parenting years. Services include transportation to appointments, assistance with accessing prenatal, postpartum, and well-baby care, information and support on healthy pregnancy and parenting practices, referral and linkage to school/work, social services benefits, and housing options. In addition, staff can provide crucial emotional support during a difficult time in a teen’s life.
The parent educator staff consists of former teen parents who have overcome the obstacles of parenting at an early age. They are strong role models for young parents. The social work staff is available to provide short-term and crisis counseling to clients, as well as conduct initial intakes and assessments. The GENESIS nurse is available to teach birthing classes, provide breast-feeding education and support, and help clients access needed medical care for themselves or their children.
Staff is available to meet with clients in the comfort of their homes, at GENESIS offices, or at neutral sites.

Olde Columbine High School Teen Parenting Program
The Teen Parenting Program (TPP) has been a part of SVVSD for over 20 years. The TPP is a career and technical education program that is designed to 1) teach young parents the skills necessary to successfully parent a child and 2) to provide an on-site nursery so that parents can visit and feed their young child through the school day.
Any SVVSD parent can take the teen parent class that is offered at CDC. This class can be started during pregnancy or after the baby is born. To complete this program, students should take 2 semesters of the teen parenting class.
Students interested in using the on-site nursery must apply and be enrolled in Olde Columbine High School. Students using the nursery must also take two semesters of the teen parenting class at CDC. Since the nursery can keep babies up to 18 months, some students may continue to use the nursery after they have completed the class.
