Program E: Teen Pregnancy Services

Program Authorization: R.S. 46:2521

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Teen Pregnancy Services Program in the Office of Women Services is to equip at-risk teens with the knowledge, skills and options to delay parenting until they are responsible, self-sufficient adults.

The goal of the Teen Pregnancy Services Program in the Office of Women Services is to provide for the delivery of comprehensive educational and social services to at-risk teens to decrease the incidence of teenage pregnancy.

The Teen Pregnancy Services Program contains two activities: Direct services to teens and Contract monitoring and evaluation of social services contract.

Direct service to Teens. Ten to twelve program sites provide educational, health, enrichment, personal development and recreational activities for teens living in high-risk communities in the New Orleans area.

Contract monitoring and evaluation of social services contracts. The Office of Women Services contracts with private, non-profit, community-based programs in neighborhoods facing perils of low-income, substance abuse, lack of role models, limited services and violence. High rates of teen pregnancy are a common thread. The agency funds, monitors, provides technical assistance and evaluates the effectiveness of program services. All contracts meet the requirements of the Division of Administration, Office of Contractual Review. Each program is monitored quarterly and submits monthly narrative reports on program activities.

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the FY 1999-2000. Performance indicators are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).
