New Haven Healthy Start is a program that helps pregnant women and mothers deliver healthy and happy babies. Its primary goal is to reduce the infant mortality and morbidity rate in the City of New Haven. The program was awarded a fourth round of federal funding in 2009 to:
help reduce New Haven’s remaining health disparity in infant mortality;
increase its emphasis on multi-pronged outreach strategy;
strengthen connections with new community resources;
enhance case management capabilities for working with women at high-risk of poor birth outcomes. (Special outreach will be made to teens, the homeless, and those who lack insurance coverage and who have had previous poor birth outcomes).

Forging Racial Equity in the Valley of the Sun

In recognition of Black History Month, LISC Phoenix program officer Dominic Braham reflects on the African-American history of his city, and how the influence of a historic “dividing line” between downtown and the redlined neighborhoods of South Phoenix still shapes its communities. Developing local leadership of color, connecting people with the region’s prosperity, and committing to racial equity as the city develops, he explains, are keys to authentic civic engagement and a more inclusive Phoenix.
