Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Black mothers and babies are 2x more likely to die than white mothers and babies. This is, by some estimates, as high or higher than during slavery. The systemic bias within the healthcare system, wide spread misinformation, and societal pressures keep us from even a basic standard of informative, compassionate care that would keep Black women and children alive.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

It is our mission to educate, support, advocate for, and encourage black families in a way that saves lives and builds confidence.

Our strategy is to create collaborative partnerships with maternal child health providers and to promote support services that will aid mothers in reaching their goals in breastfeeding. We will also assist in helping mothers to gain the information and guidance they need to improve positive outcomes in childbirth.

We have the partnerships and staff needed to support a Breastfeeding Peer Counseling program and to provide access to breastfeeding and childbirth education and counseling.

Village Health Partners, a program in partnership with Health Connect One, has served 11 mothers in our inaugural season during the fourth quarter of 2022. We have also launched The Gold Movement, a comprehensive breastfeeding course through our program Universi-T.E.A. 20 families are now well informed of successful breastfeeding strategies and how to engage with a dedicated provider for follow care and management.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
