Project WIN’s Impact

Project WIN (Welcoming Infants Into Neighborhoods) focuses on providing health education and support to young families who are expecting or have a baby 12 months or younger. A public health nurse helps identify needs and analyzes access to health care, provides health assessments, and educates on healthcare and child development.

Social workers or parent coaches provide support in developing parenting and self-sufficiency skills, establishing and achieving educational goals, and helping connect families to other community agencies depending on need. Nurses and coaches visit one to two times per month.
