Intermountain Healthcare is joining with the non-profit organizations Prevent Child Abuse Utah and the United Way of Northern Utah’s Welcome Baby Program to coordinate in-home visiting programs for at risk moms and young children in Weber County. This effort is funded in part by a $1.2 million dollar gift to the Intermountain Foundation from a Utah family.

These organizations offer various programs in Weber County that provide in-home visits to pregnant and new mothers and their young children. Each program has goals to improve outcomes for moms during and after pregnancy and helps babies and young children reach certain developmental milestones.

The new Home Visiting program provides moms and families with health, parenting and educational resources, as well as emotional support. Home visits help with parenting and family health. A mother and child’s wellbeing can be impacted by factors outside their control, including poverty, food or housing insecurity.

SelectHealth recognizes this innovative, coordinated effort by Intermountain Healthcare, Prevent Child Abuse Utah, and the United Way of Northern Utah as another example of how Utah Gives Back.
