Maternal, Child and Family Health Program

Montgomery County’s Maternal, Child, and Family Health (MCH) program seeks to improve health outcomes for mothers and children, particularly those who are vulnerable or without access to care. Working with community partners and other stakeholders, we seek to reduce disparities in infant mortality, reduce childhood lead poisoning, and increase access to free, evidence-based family supports such as home visiting.

MCH is a founding member of The Montgomery County Maternal and Early Childhood Consortium (MECC), which is a free membership organization that drives many of the initiatives of the MCH program.

The Montgomery County Parent and Infant Resource Guide (English and Spanish) is primarily designed for pregnant women and families with pre-school children and we hope that this guide will make local resources more accessible to persons in the county.
