Organization Description and Mission::
Founded in 1980, Maternity Care Coalition (MCC) is a non-profit organization focused on improving the health and wellbeing of pregnant women, parents, and young children. Our comprehensive approach includes direct service for families, research, and public policy initiatives.
MCC has assisted more than 90,000 families throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania since its founding, focusing particularly on neighborhoods with high rates of poverty, infant mortality, health disparities, and changing immigration patterns. The MOMobile® provides community-based home visiting services; Cribs for Kids educates families on safe sleep and gives a crib to families who cannot afford one. As Pennsylvania’s largest Early Head Start provider, we deliver comprehensive home-based and center-based early childhood and parenting programs.
MCC’s research deepens understanding of issues related to maternal and child health, and enables us to improve service delivery and to provide evidence-based interventions. We also educate and inform policymakers at all levels to improve outcomes for childbearing families.
Maternity Care Coalition envisions a future in which all families receive solid support throughout the critical period of pregnancy through age three in a manner that enables lifelong health and wellbeing.
• Each child is welcomed.
• Each person is nurtured and achieves his or her full potential.
• Parents and guardians are empowered to care for themselves and their children.
• Communities understand and act upon the imperative to provide systematic support.
As a result, all families and individuals are healthy, connected, and economically self-sufficient.
