Maternal and Child Health Programs
Healthy Communities has multiple programs designed for Maternal and Child Health including the Early Start Programs, Baby and Me Tobacco Free Program (BMTFP), car seat inspections, Safe Sleep, Child Injury Prevention, and more. The Early Start Programs and BMTFP are specific to expectant mothers and have free incentives for those enrolling including free diapers and wipes, diaper genies, breastfeeding kit, and more. All these programs are free of charge and open to all. If you need assistance in any of these areas or getting insurance, making other prenatal or post-partum appointments, or referrals to other community programs, please contact us.
Prenatal Care Coordination Program
Baby and Me Tobacco Free Program
The Baby and Me Tobacco Free Program (BMTFP) is for pregnant women who are smoking, or were smoking in the three months previous to becoming pregnant. BMTFP is designed to help an individual quit smoking and stay quit through education and assistance. Incentives are offered from enrollment prenatally through birth, and then clients can earn $25 gift cards monthly to be used on diapers or wipes up to one year post-partum for staying tobacco free. An individual must be enrolled in this program prenatally to qualify for the monthly diapers and wipes post-partum.
Quit smoking and get FREE DIAPERS for up to one year! Complete 4 sessions with our Baby & Me Facilitator and quit smoking prior to the birth of your baby is all that it takes. Does your partner smoke as well? They could also qualify for our program – which could mean double the free diapers for you and your baby! Post partum, you will return every 30 days for a year for a breath or saliva test to show that you are still smoke free and you will receive your voucher. Contact our Baby & Me Facilitator today to get signed up!

Child Injury Prevention Program
The Child Injury Prevention (CIP) program assists families in need of safety equipment for their children and household. You will see us out in the community with this program with free sunscreen and water safety in the summer months or medicine lock boxes at Drug Take Back days.
Car Seat Safety
Healthy Communities has two certified car seat technicians on staff. During a car seat inspection, as a client you will see any improper installation methods, learn important safety measures for the car seat, and make sure your child is safe! Our car seat techs will also make sure your seat has not been recalled or is expired. If you are in need of a free car seat inspection, please contact us to set up an appointment.
