Although teen pregnancy rates in the United States are declining somewhat, we still lead the industrialized nations of the world with an astounding four out of every ten teenage girls becoming pregnant by age 20. The Children's Aid Society (CAS) has worked for over 30 years to learn how to stem this awful tide, while improving teens' lives on many fronts, at the same time. The implementation of The Children's Aid Society Carrera Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Program has been a big step toward the realization of this goal.

Established in 1853, The Children's Aid Society is one of the country's oldest and largest non-sectarian child and family welfare agencies. Developed by Charles Loring Brace to assist New York City's homeless children who were neglected and labeled "street urchins," The Children's Aid Society now serves over 120,000 children and their families each year through more than 100 programs and services at over 30 sites in and around New York City. With a comprehensive range of programs and services, CAS is uniquely qualified to address every aspect of a child's life, from infancy through adolescence. Programs and services include health, adoption and foster care, medical and dental care, counseling, preventive services, summer camps and winter respite camps for the disabled, services for the homeless, recreation, the arts, education, college scholarship, job training and more.
