Research & Data
Much of the research and the discourse about expectant and parenting youth and their children focuses on their increased vulnerability to long-term negative experiences, such as future involvement of their children in the child welfare system, income and housing instability and interrupted education. CSSP believes that these families also present policymakers, administrators and practitioners with twice the opportunity. By building multi-generational strategies that strengthen and meet the developmental needs of both parents and their children, we can create a system of opportunities through which these young families can succeed and thrive.
The following is a compilation of research reports that can help inform policy and practice.
