Healthy Start

Programs and Services

We provide a wide range of services that support your individual needs—from connecting you to important resources to offering workshops on childcare topics.

Your Well-being

We’ll start by talking in-depth with you about your life, health and any factors that might be affecting your well-being. Together we'll develop a customized plan based on your individual needs, working together to address your goals. Women who experience high levels of psychosocial stress—which results from dealing with stressful situations in our lives—are at risk for poor pregnancy outcomes, including infant loss and premature birth. We work with you to identify the things in your life that might be causing high levels of stress, and connect you with the stress reduction classes and workshops offered by our community partners that can help you.

Education and Support

We connect you to a variety of group classes and workshops to help you address your individual needs and goals. The classes and workshops cover topics like:
  • Self-care
  • Infant care
  • Reproductive health
  • Breastfeeding
  • Safe sleep
  • Injury prevention (car seat safety)
  • Father engagement
  • Nutrition
  • Financial literacy

Fatherhood/Male Involvement

We provide individual and group education and training programs as part of our fatherhood initiative and case management services for men, including a men’s group that meets monthly and is open to the community. Our team can provide information and referrals to community resources for fathers and/or men associated with mothers enrolled in Healthy Start.

Community Services and Events

We host a number of events throughout the year that support the community and provide helpful tips and resources for families, and are open to anyone, not just those receiving case management services from Healthy Start. You can learn more about our events here. In addition, we collaborate with community initiatives that align with our mission. To stay up-to-date on community events where you can find the Healthy Start team, sign up for our newsletter or connect with us on Facebook.
