Healthy Babies, Empowered Mothers & Strong Families
The mission of MOMS Orange County is to help mothers and their families have healthy babies by providing health coordination, education and access to community services.
Founded in 1992 as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, MOMS Orange County grew out of a public-private partnership created to help solve a severe prenatal care crisis in Orange County. In the summer of 1989, our founder, Dottie Andrews, was instrumental in establishing town forums to address the lack of prenatal care for low-income women in Orange County. From the town forums to a task force convened by the Orange County Board of Supervisors, Dottie and a group of committed volunteers established MOMS Orange County to increase access to prenatal care for low-income women in Orange County.
