To learn more about the initiative, you can read more via the following link:

Stan Martin, the initiative’s Project Director, recently asked member agencies (like Adoption STAR) to encourage completion of a survey tool that will garner important information/insight and ultimately help guide the initiative’s work.

Individuals that are:

  • Between the ages of 14-21 AND are currently expecting a child OR
  • HAD their FIRST child between the ages of 14-21.

If you fall into either of these categories, please consider taking the survey! Researchers are hoping to gain insight from participants on their feelings and experiences related to sex, birth control, and pregnancy. The information collected will be used to help reduce teen pregnancy in Buffalo. Participants are encouraged to answer the questions as openly and honestly as possible. The survey will be up and running through August 12th, 2016 and is completely anonymous.
