Maternal Health Day of Action

On Wednesday, September 27th, HHS Secretary Becerra, HRSA Administrator Carole Johnson, and Mayor Brandon M. Scott visited BHS Headquarters. Additionally, we were joined by partners from the National Healthy Start Association.

The Health Resources and Services Administration visited us to host a roundtable on maternal health where our all-star client, Gladys Qualls participated and shared her testimony of Baltimore Healthy Start alongside our Chief Deputy Director, Maxine Reed-Vance.

We offer a number of programs and services geared to help support mothers, fathers, and their families living in our targeted communities, through all stages of parenting — from preconception to pregnancy to postpartum and between pregnancies, and during a child’s first few years of life — and beyond.
