This brief summarizes the key findings on implementing Steps to Success in San Angelo Texas. The program is being operated as part of a research study in which young mothers are randomly assigned to receive one of two home visiting interventions, a traditional program focused on parenting and child development, and Steps to Success, focused on contraception and adequate birth spacing, as well as parenting and child development. The brief draws on a previously published report and is part of a multi-component evaluation of the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP), led by Mathematica for the Administration for Children and Families at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. PREP provides federal funding to educate youth on abstinence and contraception. (Author abstract)
