Since 1980, Maternity Care Coalition has assisted more than 100,000 families throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania, focusing particularly on neighborhoods with high rates of poverty, infant mortality, health disparities, and changing immigration patterns. We know a family’s needs change as they go through the pregnancy and their child’s first years and we offer a range of services and programs for every step along the way.
The mission of Maternity Care Coalition is to improve maternal and child health and well-being through the collaborative efforts of individuals, families, providers, and communities in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
MCC envisions a future in which all families receive solid support throughout the critical period of pregnancy through age three in a manner that enables lifelong health and well-being.
- Each child is welcomed
- Each person is nurtured and achieves their full potential
- Parents and guardians are empowered to care for themselves and their children
- Communities understand and act upon the imperative to provide systematic support
As a result, all families and individuals are healthy, connected and economically self-sufficient and all children thrive and are ready to learn.

Our donors help the MCC heart beat. Without donors who selflessly share their resources, time and connections, we could not provide the support our clients need. We are especially thankful to our Carnation Club members, who are individuals and families who pledge to donate $1,000 or more each year. If you are interested in becoming a member, contact Jessica Borger for more information.
