Healthy Women, Healthy Families

Program for Pregnant Women, New Mothers and Families

Healthy Women, Healthy Families (HWHF) is a statewide initiative focusing on improving maternal and infant health outcomes for all women of childbearing age and their families while reducing racial, ethnic and economic disparities. This is accomplished through a collaborative, community driven approach by the Central Intake Specialists, Early Childhood Specialists and Community Health Workers. The CJFHC HWHF team serves Mercer, Middlesex, Somerset and Hunterdon counties.  To connect to your local Central Intake hub outside of these four counties, you can click on the following link
