Next Generation Maternal Infant Health Program takes a comprehensive approach to improving maternal and infant wellbeing in Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties. Through culturally-competent home visiting services, we empower mothers to have healthy pregnancies and positive birth outcomes. Families receive essential baby items, fatherhood support, and connection to community resources.


Our community baby showers also promote maternal mental health, financial planning, first aid skills, and peer networking. By addressing medical, material, and social determinants of health, we aim to curb alarming trends in maternal and infant mortality affecting local families, especially in Detroit amongst African American families.


Next Generation Maternal Infant Health Program partners with mothers every step of the way to foster generations of healthy children through strong starts in nurturing environments.


Home Visiting

Once enrolled, you will be assigned a Licensed Social Worker or Registered Nurse who will come to your home and provide support services at your convenience.

Your personal clinician will provide individual tailored plans of care based on your needs. You both will work together to address your needs, no concern is too big or too small!

Promote Healthy Pregnancies

With your consent, Next Generation coordinates services with your medical care provider to ensure that you are receiving the needed prenatal care to that you and your baby need.

Once baby is born, we also work with your baby’s Pediatrician to ensure they are also receiving the needed care.

No OB? No Pediatrician? No worries, we will help you connect with a community provider!

“My son Tyler and I were blessed with Lesley as our social worker. As a new mom in a pandemic world, navigating life itself was difficult until Lesley came into our world. She has been the most helpful resourceful and kind human being to us. Anyone who gets to meet Lesley, or have her as their social worker will be blessed abundantly. We will never forget her and the loving kindness she brought to our family during a hectic time.
