Pregnant & Parenting Teens & Women

Date Awarded

11-2011

Project Description

Joan Demeules, Director of Counseling and Student Development, received two grants to expand St. Catherine's Access and Success program. The first, a $240,000 grant from the Minnesota Department of Health's Young Parent Support Initiative (YPSI), will address the needs of college-age pregnant and parenting young people, who must balance school, work and family life. For these adolescents, higher education is a critical step in achieving economic stability. The grant will provide additional support and education for these vulnerable populations. St. Catherine University also received a $64,420 Consulting Contract that will provide consultation, technical assistance and training as the University launches the new student parent help center.
