Community Asset Mapping Project

The Hennepin County Teen Parent Connection (HCTPC) is an organized group of professionals who work with pregnant and parenting teens in Hennepin County. HCTPC plans to develop a coordinated system to serve all pregnant and parenting teens and their children, but needs to determine how to distribute finite resources efficiently and effectively. There is not currently a good handle on where all the resources are and which organizations are offering best practices services. An environmental scan will bring in information on what services are offered, to whom, and where. This information will then be mapped. Alexandra Generous, a master of Social work student, will identify resources available in Hennepin County for pregnant and parenting teens and develop an asset map. The results will be used by professionals in the community to make appropriate referrals for clients and for strategic planning purposes to identify service gaps and overlaps.
