Mission Statement

Through community-driven initiatives, reduce the rate of infant mortality and improve perinatal outcomes in high-risk communities.

Description

This is a home-visiting, case management program providing education, information and referral services to pregnant women and teens who reside in the City of Norfolk. The case managers "resource mothers" conduct risk screens to determine the needs of the women and refer them to the proper agency. The resource mothers assist the clients with transporation to prenatal, postpartum and well-baby care appointments. The case management team consists of the resource mother, a nutritionist, and a nursing care coordinator.

The goals of the program are to reduce infant mortality and morbidity; expand the interconception period to at least two years; and to increase graduation rates for school-aged pregnant teens.
