The Health Division at Community Resource Project, Inc. houses a variety of programs intended to provide additional health-related services to the families we serve.
The Cal Learn Program is designed to provide counseling and supportive services to pregnant and parenting teens. The purpose of the program is to support the teens as they complete high school. The program provides case management until the client obtains a high school diploma.
The program is designed to assist the young people with guidance and life counseling. Counselors monitor school progress and assist with ancillary needs including health care, family planning, nutrition, education, transportation, housing and other services.
Experienced case managers are available at most of our locations throughout Sacramento County and provide services in many languages.
What is Cal Learn?
