About   

Healthy Start is a national program that helps improves the lives of mothers, infants, and families before, during and beyond pregnancy. Through coordinated care case management, home visits and outreach and education Healthy Start seeks to reduce infant and maternal mortality rates, increase access to prenatal care and remove barriers to service. Houston has high rates of infant and maternal mortality with black mothers being most at risk.

Clients referred to UH Healthy Start will receive in-home case management services and will be navigated through health care and community resources based on eligibility and need.

Services are FREE and CONFIDENTIAL.
