Maternal, Child & Family Wellness
We know that raising healthy children gives them the important head start they need for success in school, in work and in life. We are committed to ensuring a continuum of care for our members and their families, including pre-natal care for pregnant moms, a healthy start for babies and ongoing physical, dental and mental health care as children grow.

Foster Care System Navigation – Working in partnership with the Oregon Department of Human Services and foster parents, this program supports the ongoing development of a system of care for the vulnerable children served by the child welfare system.
