The mission of Maternity Care Coalition (MCC) is to improve the health and well-being of pregnant women and parenting families, and enhance school readiness for children 0-3.
Maternity Care Coalition 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 caregivers 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.
We envision a future where parents impacted by racial and social inequities can birth with dignity, parent with autonomy, and raise babies who are healthy, growing, and thriving.
For so many, the early days and years of being a parent do not come easily. This season of life can be fraught with challenges that lead parents to question themselves as caretakers. For Bibi, the parenting journey was filled with ups and downs. Looking for support and guidance, she discovered MCC.
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice
Maternity Care Coalition is dedicated to fairness and belonging for our staff and the people we serve. We recognize the impact of historical and racial injustice and are committed to making lasting change for equity and equality. We engage our staff in assessments, training, and planning to focus on three key areas: our culture, leadership, and policies. By embedding diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice in everything we do, we aim to have happier employees, better services, and greater impact.
Theory of Change
At MCC, how we do our work is as important as the services we offer. We work at the family, community, and policy level to address the racial and social inequities experienced by parents and their children.
By partnering with Maternity Care Coalition you have a unique opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of pregnant people, mothers, families, and babies.
