Healthy Start is a federally funded program whose mandate is to encourage healthy pregnancies, improve birth outcomes, and reduce the infant mortality rate. There are many Healthy Start programs throughout the country; each one is a little different, but they all have the same mission: to reach out to pregnant woman and provide services to encourage healthy birth outcomes and healthy families.

Our Commitment
Our project is committed to addressing the racial and ethnic disparities in perinatal care by offering education, counseling, and support through home visitation to families, and by developing strong collaborations with community health care and social service providers. Our Healthy Start staff are ethnically and linguistically diverse, and come to our project with much experience and dedication to our community. If you would like to learn more about Community Healthy Start, please call Katy Gingles, Program Manager, at 202/483 8319, extension 357
