#NCFYtalk Recap: Teen Pregnancy Prevention Strategies for Runaway, Homeless, and Foster Care Youth

A young woman talking online.

In recognition of both National Teen Pregnancy Prevention and National Foster Care Months, we co-hosted a May 17 Twitter chat with the Children’s Bureau’s Child Welfare Information Gateway on teen pregnancy prevention strategies for runaway, homeless, and foster care youth. Participants chatted about the importance of preventing teen pregnancy among these vulnerable groups, strategies that work, and available resources for professionals.
