The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Community Asset Mapping Project.

Bedor, Mikala M.


In late 2012, the Hennepin County Teen Parent Connection received a grant from the University of Minnesota’s Center for Urban and Regional Affairs. The Hennepin County Teen Parent Connection sought to understand the gaps and overlaps in the services available to teen mothers, fathers and their children within Hennepin County.

 Project Goals 

There were two primary goals for the Community Asset Mapping Project: 

  1. To understand the existing services available to teen mothers, fathers and their children in Hennepin County.
  2. To identify gaps in the services available to teen mothers, fathers and their children within Hennepin County. 

Emerging trends 

These data revealed three general trends: 

  1. Differences in the general accessibility of services for teen mothers, fathers and their children residing in Northwestern, Western and Southern Hennepin County. 
  2. Differences in the accessibility of certain types of services based on the minor and adult status of teen mothers and fathers. 
  3. Differences in breadth of services offered to teen mothers and fathers
