Challenge

New moms classified as high-risk faced the potential elimination of critically-needed service of in-home nursing care in Michigan.

Approach

Acuitas worked with communities, legislators and the governor’s office to save and expand a program in Michigan that serves over 9 communities and helps thousands of low-income moms and children.

Results

Over a 5-year period, over $8 million has been invested in program funding. The long-term outcomes for mothers and children are excellent with proven results including healthier babies, up-to-date immunization, improved school readiness, and better life skills.
