WHO WE ARE
Healthy Start provides support to at-risk women and children in Allegheny County through free health education programs and services in their communities.
We are part of a network of more than 100 community-based Healthy Start projects across the United States. Our goal is to make sure all families have access to affordable, quality care to decrease the number of infants that don’t live to see their first birthdays.
Healthy Start is unique because our community-based programs and services extend beyond the care of newborns to include mothers, fathers and families—touching the entire community. We work with local residents, medical providers, social service agencies, businesses and faith-based organizations to reduce the infant mortality rate (IMR) and the number of low birth weight babies born in Allegheny County each year.
