Infant Mortality Prevention Program
The singular purpose of this project is to reduce infant mortality rates among African American babies in Sacramento County California. Fundamental to the mission of this program is the belief that every baby is precious and any baby dying from preventable means is unacceptable. Through the matching of Mentors and Mentee (expecting mother), we will provide side by side mentoring, direction, education, healthy habits and most importantly, emotional support to the pregnant mother and their families. The mentor/mentee aspect of our program is unique among other similar infant mortality prevention programs and is one of the reasons for the tremendous success of this program.
