Pre- and Post-natal Services

TCAA coordinates the Heath Start Program for the Tempe and west Mesa areas. Health Start is a partnership with the Arizona Department of Health Services and utilizes community health workers to provide education, support, and advocacy services to pregnant and postpartum women and their families.

 

Families receive home visits and case management, with oversight by nurses and social workers, through the enrolled child’s second year of life. Pregnant women are connected to prenatal care providers, and receive on-going education about fetal development and health behaviors that can impact birth outcomes.

 

TCAA Health Start Program provides services in Tempe and some areas in Scottsdale and Mesa. To learn more please call 480-350-5877.
