QHF provided a grant of $40,000 to continue support for Visiting Intervention Program. This year, the funds will be used for a new initiative entitled the Early Education and Outreach Project. This project provides education and resource materials for families on the Lower Shore of Maryland surrounding perinatal mental health and wellness for new mothers and for young families. Additionally, the project will provide educational activities focused on children of incarcerated parents and children with developmental concerns. These educational activities will target caregivers, community members, current professionals, and future professionals.
