Healthy Homes, Healthy Children

Our Focus

The Healthy Homes, Healthy Children Working Group is making sure all babies in our region are born healthy and stay healthy. The group wants every child and family to have access to important resources such as prenatal care, newborn home visitation programs and well-child medical screenings.

Current Priorities
It is my hope that the Minus 9 to 5 initiative will implore service providers, systems staff and citizens to embrace an approach that shares resources and time to create solutions that empower the people each project is designed to impact. It is the only way to BE the change we want to see.
