The Future of the Massachusetts Alliance on Teen Pregnancy
To our community, supporters, donors, partners, and friends:
As we shared in August 2017, the Massachusetts Alliance on Teen Pregnancy will be ceasing operations as of June 30, 2018. We recognize that there is still vital work to be done; however, given the current funding environment for teen pregnancy prevention and the changing needs of the communities we serve, we believe that other community-based organizations are better positioned to take on these challenges.
We are incredibly proud of the work we’ve achieved during the past 39 years and thank all of you for making it possible. Because of our collective voice and unrelenting advocacy for young parents, teen pregnancy prevention, and teen reproductive health, Massachusetts now has the third lowest teen birth rate in the nation and more teen parents have stayed in school, received job training, and become self-supporting.
All MATP programming will cease as of June 30, 2018. A condensed version of our website, with updated resources, will remain live through June 2019, but it will not be updated since there will be no point of contact or staff member to answer questions/inquiries.
Without our dedicated staff, board, partners, funders, and donors, the gains made for young people over the last 39 years would not have been possible. We are incredibly grateful for the community’s support and trust that this incredibly important work will continue for many years to come.
Chair, Board of Directors
