ACF Family Room Blog: Success Sequence = Optimal Health for Youth

This blogpost illustrates some of the programs at the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) in the Administration on Children, Youth, and Families (ACYF) which are designed to reduce youth homelessness, domestic violence, and adolescent pregnancy. The blogpost identifies one approach for self-sufficiency and health among FYSB-funded grantees that is called the success sequence – first graduate from high school, then get a full-time job, and then get married before having children – which, if followed in that order, is likely to enable young people to avoid poverty and to achieve economic stability.
