About the Programs

The State of Connecticut’s Department of Social Services (DSS) is dedicated to supporting program models that are scientifically proven to work. DSS has been an advocate of preventing adolescent pregnancy and childbearing in Connecticut since 1987 when the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative was first established.

Over the last several years, the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative has supported evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention programs in Connecticut communities with the greatest need for teen pregnancy prevention services. In these economic times, there are simply too few resources to squander if teen pregnancies are to be prevented. For this reason, the Connecticut Department of Social Services embraces two distinct program models that prevent teenagers from getting pregnant and having babies. These models are:
