Explanation

Background:
CelebrateOne, in the Office of the Mayor, addresses the social determinants of health in the highest priority areas. This ordinance highlights one of most critical social determinants of health: education. The need to provide a neighborhood intervention to reduce teen pregnancy and address comprehensive teen reproductive health education is part of CelebrateOne’s goals to reduce infant mortality. This ordinance authorizes the Office of the Mayor to enter into a contract with National Center for Urban Solutions, Inc. located in the Near East neighborhood in an amount of $100,000.00 for the period of June 1, 2018 through June 1, 2019.
The National Center for Urban Solutions founded Academy of Urban Scholar High School in 2011. The high school will be responsible to implement this neighborhood intervention at their site to address teen pregnancy and teen reproductive health education to reduce infant mortality. The students who attend the Academy of Urban Scholars are from the various CelebrateOne high priority neighborhoods with a total minority enrollment at 100%. The high school is a committed partner to address infant mortality with CelebrateOne.
Emergency action is requested in order to ensure deliverables can begin immediately to reduce infant mortality.
FISCAL IMPACT: Funding for this contract had been budgeted in the 2018 General Fund for CelebrateOne.
