What We Do
We center babies and their families by supporting, referring, educating, researching, and advocating. Our approach is radically family-centered and collaborative. We believe our families are the experts of their own experience and support them in recognizing their strengths and accomplishing their goals. At all levels of our work, we nurture respectful relationships, promote self-determination, and ensure diverse voices are heard.
How We Support
To achieve a more equitable and just future, we work at the family, community, and policy level, each mutually supporting.
Advocating for Better Policies and Programs
Our Policy and Advocacy team relies on staff that works directly with families to inform its agenda because we believe the individuals most impacted by a problem hold the solution. It’s our responsibility to center the experience and expertise of the communities we serve as we promote policies and legislation.
Supporting Parents, Families, and Communities
We implement a community-based prevention strategy to provide support and education to parents to adapt to changes and challenges that come with pregnancy and parenting.
Participating in Research to Find Solutions
Our research deepens the knowledge base on issues related to maternal and child health, enabling us to continually improve our service delivery and raise awareness on critical racial and social inequities.
