Indy Teen ParentsThe Young Families of Indiana Network sponsored a state-wide conference in June 2012: The 2012 Pregnant and Parenting Teen Conference – Stepping Stones to the Future, Promising a World of Possibilities.

BrdsNBz National Text Line Director, Kennon Jackson, spoke on “What Are They Really Asking: Adolescents’ Questions About Pregnancy”.

The Future Promises Program of Marion County includes a teen father’s program, a formal partnership with Indianapolis Healthy Start, and a regional/state resource for teen parents, their parents, and professionals. To reflect their expanded mission, they changed their name in 2012 and are now known as the Young Families of Indiana Network (YFIN). The Future Promises Program is one program within YFIN. The name change reflects their intent to be a service leader for this special population. Organizationally YFIN will remain a division of the External Affairs Department of Health and Hospital Corporation of Marion County.
