Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program

Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program

Will County Health Department is striving to make a significant impact on reducing rates of teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, and existing health disparities and to put youth on the path to a successful future.

Beginning in March of 2016, the WCHD has been working with the Illinois Department of Human Services, the Village of Bolingbrook and the Valley View School District.

This five-year grant provides our agency with funding for programs, curriculum, training, and community health educators to implement evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention curricula in the Valley View School District’s Bolingbrook middle schools, high school, and alternative school. This new evidence-based initiative specifically focuses on reducing the rate of teen pregnancy, HIV, and other sexually transmitted infections, as well as risky sexual behaviors among adolescents.

High Risk Family Case Management

Focuses on DCFS Wards Under Six, Pregnant DCFS Wards, and High Risk Infants Under Age of Two

This program provides guidance and support to foster parents to ensure children have appropriate medical care; including well child visits, specialty medical visits, dental check-ups, vision and hearing screens, and immunizations.

We ensure that a child has a PCP and foster parents are referred to providers as needed.

We also report to the DCFS caseworker the child's medical history/status/concerns every six months.

Pregnant DCFS wards are provided prenatal education, support, and guidance throughout the pregnancy. We help locate an OB provider as needed, and do home visits on the young ladies.

High Risk Infants are referred to us by the Illinois Department of Public Health when they are discharged from the hospital. Parents are provided with support, education, and guidance. Developmental screenings are done at specific intervals, and early intervention programs are contacted as needed.
