Our Story

Since 1980, Maternity Care Coalition has partnered with more than 145,000 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.

Our Mission
The mission of Maternity Care Coalition is to improve the health and well-being of pregnant women and parenting families, and enhance school readiness for children 0-3.

Our Vision
MCC envisions an equitable future where all families are healthy and connected, with all children thriving and ready to learn.

  • 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 Core Values
