Healthy Child and Family Consortium

The Healthy Child and Family Consortium was formed to strengthen the well-being of families in a respectful and compassionate manner by providing preventative services, education and health resources to expectant parents and young children in Madison County.

This task force was formed in 2015 as a result of the Community Health Assessment data collected indicating a need to improve the health and safety of children and families throughout Madison County in the following areas; Infant Mortality/ Morbidity Prevention, Early Childhood Wellness and Community Resources. The consortium meets monthly to engage in discussion, development and implementation of meaning activities related to county shared priority need areas.
