$31,277 Grant for Maternal Health

Community Grant SupporterThe Foundation received a $31,277 grant which will go toward our Welcome Baby program for telehealth needs. Due to COVID-19, staff are providing education via zoom versus in-person visits. Many underserved families of color don’t have computers and are only able to participate via phone calls. Education on breastfeeding, mother-infant attachment, postpartum depression/anxiety screenings, and developmental milestones are very difficult to provide on the phone since staff are unable to use visual aids (share screen, videos, books,) and visual cues. The grant will fund 50 I-pads to lend to participants.
