Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Improving access to healthcare for Georgia's women and children.
DIRECT SERVICE. Since 1984, we've operated a toll-free bilingual phone line to access healthcare. The Georgia Department of Public Health now contracts with us to provide this federally mandated Maternal & Child Health Call Center. We receive over 20,000 calls and make approximately 50,000 healthcare referrals a year.
ADVOCACY. Call Center data has proven to be an invaluable tool in supporting legislative reform. We are a strong statewide voice for maternal and infant health policy issues. We added a Breastfeeding Licensure & Reimbursement Initiative in 2011.
COLLABORATION. Our vital role in linking public and private initiatives has resulted in elimination of barriers to existing services, reduction in duplication of services, and effective utilization of limited health resources. HMHB membership allows communication between healthcare providers, grassroots advocates and citizens.
