This report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation focuses on the barriers facing teens and young adults who are parenting. It presents national and state-level data about challenges related to housing instability, health concerns, delayed education, and limited employment options that affect these young parents and their children. The report provides recommendations for local, state, and federal policymakers to combine and target resources available to all parents and young people to close any gaps in services for young families. It highlights existing programs that support young families. (author abstract modified)
