Love & Learn’s Impact

Designed especially for pregnant and parenting teens and young adults 25 years and younger living in Douglas and Sarpy counties, Love & Learn is a free home visitation program offered by VNA and Nebraska Early Childhood Collaborative.

Public health nurses, social workers, and parent coaches work together with young parents to create personalized goals related to health, parenting, school, and employment, and families may be referred to other partner agencies for additional resources. Participants also have the opportunity to attend monthly socialization events, which are designed to increase the teens’ social support systems.
