Family First Health will be recognized as a finalist in Central Penn Business Journal's 2019 Nonprofit Innovation Awards Program. The health center will receive this recognition for its Connections for a Healthy Pregnancy program. Connections for a Healthy Pregnancy is a free community outreach program that supports expectant mothers living in York City and surrounding communities by connecting them to community resources that can mitigate or remove barriers to good health, increasing the likelihood of a healthy pregnancy outcome. Community health workers meet with expectant mothers at their prenatal visit with the obstetric care provider and then check in on a regular basis through home visits and phone calls to assess needs, provide peer support and offer connections to community resources. The Connections for a Healthy Pregnancy program began in December 2017. Currently nearly 80 expectant mothers are participating in the program. Congratulations to the Family First Health team!
