Response-Ability Pregnant and Parenting Program (RAPPP)


Our Response-Ability Pregnant and Parenting Program (RAPPP) is an 8-bed, 8-crib interim shelter and supportive services program for homeless, runaway, and/or lockout pregnant or parenting teen moms, ages 14-19. Staff work with each youth on issues impacting that client’s life and well being. The Response-Ability Pregnant & Parenting Program at Open Door Youth Shelter – Lakeview takes residents on a first come, first served basis.

Once a teen mom enters the shelter, she meets with a case manager. During an initial assessment appointment, they work together to identify the client’s strengths and areas of need, creating a case plan with specific services.

Staff will also connect each client to prenatal, post delivery, and well baby care health services. Program goals include:
- Strengthening the resources in the youth’s family/support systems
- Reducing incidence of homelessness for the youth
- Supporting youth to delay subsequent pregnancies
- Enhancing the well-being of the teen family
