Our Initiatives

Home Visiting

Home visiting programs provide in-home health education and social services to pregnant and newly delivered women. Home visiting programs in Baltimore are implemented by community-based organizations and the Baltimore City Health Department. 

BHB has spearheaded an initiative to transition all home visiting programs in Baltimore City to evidence-based models of care. Several national home visiting models have been proven to improve birth outcomes, increase intervals between pregnancies, supoprt maternal self-sufficiency, and reduce child abuse. The Pew Charitable Trusts lauded Baltimore for this successful transition.  

BHB has developed criteria that triages perinatal women to the most appropriate home visiting model. Click here to see the vulnerability index pdf.
