Family & Child Health serves all families -
however the family defines themselves.

How do we define family?

A family is a group of people who come together to invest in the next generation, to care for pregnant and postpartum people, and to surround babies and children with folks who are ready and able to help them thrive.

Frequently Asked Questions

Just found out you're pregnant?

If you are pregnant, we can connect you to the Oregon Mother's Care program, which helps you complete an Oregon Health Plan application and get you approved faster than if you applied on your own. OHP prioritizes all pregnant clients and they are processed much more quickly.

We will assist you with a referral to WIC for nutritional education and assistance with vouchers for food necessary to have a health pregnancy and healthy baby. Information about other community resources is also available.

Where should I start?

The fastest way to get support from Family & Child Health is to complete our request for pregnancy and parent support. After completing this form, a member of our team will reach out as soon as possible. Explore our programs or reach out to a team member to learn more.
