Healthy Moms

Community Outreach Programs

The Healthy Moms program is funded by Rochester Regional Health, Rochester Regional Health Foundation and The Perinatal Network of Monroe County. Our program's goals are to:

  • Provide moms with the support they need to be physically healthy, emotionally healthy, and self sufficient
  • Help pregnant moms have a healthy baby that is born full-term at 40 weeks and weighs 5 1/2 pounds and above
The Healthy Moms Program provides moms with the support they need to reach their full potential as a parent and as an individual. Moms pick the services they are interested in and create a customized plan of what they would like to accomplish at Healthy Moms. Healthy Moms offers the following services:
  • Pregnancy education classes
  • On-site mental health counseling
  • Care management
  • Project Independence job training program
  • Leadership academy

Moms participating in the above services can receive on-site childcare. Moms that live in the City of Rochester can receive free transportation.
