MOMS was pleased to welcome the Children & Families Commission of Orange County to its offices in Santa Ana on March 21, 2013. During the visit, Commissioner Dr. Katherine Ahn, Commission staff and guests visited a Mommy & Me developmental activities class, observed an infant developmental screening with Home Visitor Lupe and client mother Brenda and baby David, and engaged in a Q&A with staff to gain a deeper understanding of MOMS programs.
The Children & Families Commission of Orange County has been a long-time supporter of MOMS. With its funding in 2000, MOMS was able to enhance its already successful health coordination program by extending services until the baby’s first birthday and by incorporating infant development screenings, education, and referrals into the home visitation model. Today, infant health and development is a key component of core services to mothers and their babies.
