What We Do

Strong Beginnings takes a holistic, three-tiered approach to reduce the disproportionately high rates of infant mortality and low birth-weight among communities of color. First, we provide direct support for Black and Latine families in Kent County. The next level is community, as we offer learning opportunities for community residents, health care providers and agency staff, and work to improve the overall system of care. Finally, we encourage community engagement and collaborate with others to promote racial equity and address social determinants of health.
