Adolescent Family Life Program (AFLP) is a comprehensive case management and home-visiting program for pregnant and parenting teens and their families. Services include periodic screenings and assessments, referral, and linkages to other needed services, including health care and parenting education. Comprehensive information is also provided which covers educational and vocational programs and independent living skills. The goals of the AFLP program are to improve birth outcomes, reduce repeat pregnancies, improve health, developmental and education outcomes for teens and their children, and help teen parents to become productive and independent consumers of services for themselves and their children.
AFLP is a voluntary program that is targeted toward pregnant and/or parenting teens under the age of nineteen in the Bakersfield area only. There are no income or residency restrictions and once enrolled, teens may remain in the program until the age of twenty. There are no fees for this program.
