About the GENESIS Program

En Español

GENESIS Services

GENESIS serves Boulder County teen parents from pregnancy through the child’s third birthday. The goal of the program is to promote healthy parenting practices within teen parent families in Boulder County. The program began as a pilot in 1989.

Our Staff

GENESIS staff (consisting of family support specialists and a nurse) provides pregnant and parenting teens with a continuum of case management services to assist them throughout their pregnancy and in the early parenting years. Services include transportation to appointments, assistance with accessing prenatal, postpartum, and well-baby care, information and support on healthy pregnancy and parenting practices, referral and linkage to school/work, social services benefits, and housing options. In addition, staff can provide crucial emotional support during a difficult time in a teen’s life.

The family support specialists are former teen parents who have overcome parenting obstacles at an early age. They are strong role models for young parents. The social work staff is available to provide short-term and crisis counseling to clients and conduct initial intakes and assessments. The GENESIS nurse can teach birthing classes, provide breastfeeding education and support, and help clients access needed medical care for themselves or their children.

Staff can meet with clients in the comfort of their homes, at GENESIS offices, or neutral sites.

Office hours are Monday-Friday, 8 AM – 5 PM.
