For the past 30 years, Siskiyou Community Health Center has helped parents to keep their babies and toddlers healthy and safe. Babies don’t come with instructions. That’s why we’re here with helpful information and support to help parents be the best they can be.
Project Baby Check and Healthy Start ~ Healthy Families of Josephine County
Through Project Baby Check and Healthy Start, we work with parents during the critical early stages of their children’s lives, from conception to kindergarten. Our Outreach workers are parent educators certified through Parents as Teachers. The Parents as Teachers program supports a parent’s role in promoting school readiness and healthy development of their children. We offer a relationship-based approach and embrace learning experiences that are relevant and customized for the individual needs of each family and child. We provide home visitations, monthly play groups, parenting classes, books and educational materials, nutrition and fitness classes, transportation services and much more.
Maternity Case Management
Prenatal support is offered for expecting mothers. Our program gives women confidence and support so they can have a healthy pregnancy and raise a healthy child. We teach parents about taking care of themselves during pregnancy, fetal growth and development, nutrition, caring for a newborn, breast feeding and formula feeding and preparing for labor and delivery. Everyone is welcome.
