What we stand for:
The Michigan Organization on Adolescent Sexual Health (MOASH) supports teens and young people who are expectant, pregnant, and/or parenting. It is essential that, as teen pregnancy prevention initiatives continue, they do not knowingly or unwittingly stigmatize young people who become parents. MOASH advocates for a positive youth development approach with young parents, with efforts that focus on increasing access to quality support services and helping them to understand their rights in realms of education, healthcare, employment, and more. Young parents deserve assistance and resources to achieve their personal goals while building happy, healthy, and thriving families.
