Each mother is partnered with a case manager and will meet regularly until baby turns 12 months or mother turns 21. A case manager will help with setting goals in several life areas, including:
Regular health care will help you stay healthy during your pregnancy and help your baby grow healthy and strong. Your case manager will help you find affordable care.
Are you hoping to finish high school? Go to college? Find a job? Your case manager will help you determine what you want to accomplish, and assist in working towards your goals.
Babies don’t come with instruction manuals, but you can learn to be a great parent. Your case manager can provide resources and information on how to take care of your new baby.
Your baby may be the only thing you can think about right now. Don’t forget to take care of yourself, as well as your baby. Your case manager can provide support and resources for all areas of your life.
