Young Children, Pregnant Women, New Moms

Infants, toddlers, new moms, and pregnant women can face a variety of challenges in New York households lacking appropriate financial and other resources. We support programs that accomplish the following types of initiatives:

Promoting initiatives that enhance early learning and promote healthy brain development.
Providing innovative ways to train and educate new and expectant parents about healthy childhood development.
Supporting case managers to work one-on-one with pregnant women, providing comprehensive prenatal, parenting and childbirth education classes.
Expand access to high-quality day-care facilities.

Susan’s Story

Susan Olivera is working to reduce health inequities in children by increasing and improving the quality of primary care intervention they receive. She’s the head of United Hospital Fund’s Pediatrics for an Equitable Developmental Start learning network.

PEDS consists of an online resource for pediatric primary care providers, a 15-month fellowship for early-career health care providers, and a webinar series for collaborative learning and the exchange of ideas.

We provided a $500,000 grant to fund the first year of the program, and the online resource has been active since July 2020 providing tools for pediatricians seeking to improve their operations.
