Healthy Start
The purpose of the Healthy Start Program is to educate, provide emotional support and refer our expectant mothers to community services. A healthy start worker is a "caring" type person who visits and supports pregnant women and teenage girls during their pregnancy and after the birth of their baby. 

Billy Taylor is our Healthy Start Home Visitor. She will be pleased to visit with you before and after your baby is born. She has educational books and videos that are helpful for new parents. This service is free so please contact Billy at 620-672-4153 if you are pregnant or would like a visit for you and your baby.
