The Infant Mortality Program provides free services for pregnant women, mothers, fathers, infants and their families. The goal is to help build and sustain families, reduce the high infant mortality rate, promote literacy and increase access to health care. Thousands of families have been benefited, and over 2,000 healthy babies have been born to families served by the program.
