OUR HISTORY

For more than 24 years, MOMS Orange County (a 501(c)3 non-profit organization) has provided free access to prenatal care, health screenings, infant development screenings, health education and referral services through monthly home visits and group classes. We currently serve more than 3,700 low-income families annually and have proudly demonstrated, through rigorous outside evaluation, that our program brings children in a highly disadvantaged population to health and developmental levels that exceed those set by the general population.

MOMS Orange County grew out of a public-private partnership created to help solve a severe prenatal health crisis among low-income women in Orange County. Our founder, Dottie Andrews, held town forums on the issue that then led to a task force convened by the Orange County Board of Supervisors – and ultimately to Dottie and a group of committed volunteers forming what is now MOMS Orange County.

MOMS Orange County is honored to be featured in “An Inside Look At The Children And Families Commission Of Orange County” which highlights the many ways in which the Commission has leveraged collective resources to better meet the challenges associated with keeping children healthy and ready to learn.

Our organization and its tireless staff and dedicated volunteers have been recognized by the Health Care Agency of Orange County; the Children and Families Commission of Orange County; the California Department of Health Services; and the U.S. Congress for our innovative work and impact on the health of women and babies in our community.
