Help for Parents

Parents:  Do you know that you are your teen’s #1 influence regarding decisions they make on love, relationships, and sex?

It is not a one time talk….it’s a conversation that should last 18 years.

Start early and let your kids know that you are an “askable” parent.

Don’t foget the boys – Talk to sons as well as daughters.

What We Do

The mission of the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative (TPPI) is to reduce the teen pregnancy rate and address contributing factors for Jackson County’s young people.

The TPPI is a community-wide effort led by the United Way of Jackson County and the Jackson County Health Department.

Teen pregnancy is a community health concern with many complexities that requires long-term comprehensive solutions. The Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative is committed to working towards improving the sexual health of teens in Jackson County.
