The Garfield County Teen Pregnancy Prevention Coalition pursued the Personal Responsibility Education Program grant funds due to the high number of teen pregnancies in our county and the belief that education for all students could decrease these numbers. The grant was awarded to Garfield County Department of Human Services who has remained the fiscal agent while contracting with Family Visitor Programs to implement the program. Garfield County PREP is a collaboration of schools, community based organizations and agencies, government departments, concerned citizens and teens working to provide prevention education and resources to parents and teens on healthy sexual development, healthy relationships, and sexual health issues. We intend to decrease the teen birth rate by 2%. Federal grant dollars are available through 2014.
Educating youth, empowering parents, and supporting schools.
