Annually, Healthy Families supports 250 children in low-income families throughout Multnomah County.
Healthy Families—a free, voluntary program—works closely with parents of newborns through a series of home visits. Families are enrolled before the babies are 3 months old.
The first three years of a child’s life are an important time of growth and learning.
Sadly, children born into poverty are more likely to experience neglect, abuse, malnutrition and developmental delays. Impact NW’s Healthy Families program connects our community’s neediest families with the tools and resources they need to help their newborns grow up healthy, happy, and ready to succeed in school.
