Abstract: Healthy Start is a grant-funded program focused on promoting positive birth outcomes and the reduction of infant mortality. Their Mission statement is "Eliminating disparities during the child bearing process." The National Healthy Start program was established by the Department of Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) to address disparities and the factors contributing to poor birth outcomes, the proposed scope of this project covers pregnancy through Interconceptional phases for high-risk women and infants residing in the proposed project area and encompass the family support system, including fathers and the community at large, as participants in education and outreach activities. The UNCP Healthy Start CORPS project is administered through the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and previously partnered with the Robeson County Health Department for case management and other core services. Due to sequestration, Healthy Start CORPS recently lost their partnership with RCHD and have decided to move case management in-house to take over the current client caseload. Healthy Start CORPS is located at the Regional Center in Pembroke, NC. The Regional Center is the University's link to the community and is coordinated through the Office of Engaged Outreach, directed by Associate Vice Chancellor, Dr. Cammie Hunt. As a separate project for the Esther G. Maynor Honors College, coordinating a Diaper Drive project will enable me to incorporate my knowledge base as a social work student and also gain insight into project planning and implementation.
