Background and Discussion:
Known disparities in Harris County for maternal and child health outcomes in underserved communities indicate a need for a comprehensive public health approach. A Maternal and Child Health Program with a home visiting model expands resource navigation of social and health benefits for new and expecting families through a systematic approach to care coordination, prenatal care, postpartum care, and infant-early child development.

Expected Impact:
Funding will provide direct assistance to pregnant mothers and infants at risk for severe health complications by increasing enrollment into available health coverage options, increasing the number of prenatal and well-child visits, and increasing the number of home visits for health education and access to care.
