Toy Drive Brings Cheer to MIHS Families
December 21, 2016
MIHS has been the recipient of donations of toys from Curves Gym since 2007. Throughout the last nine years, MIHS has been able to spread these donations throughout various programs representing their diverse population. The donations received this year of toys, balls and games were very generous in bringing holiday cheer to 25 families participating in the Healthy Start 3.0 program. Healthy Start 3.0 is a Care Coordination program, in partnership with Maricopa County Department of Public Health, which pairs pregnant mothers and families with young children with resources and referrals, and additional home visiting/parenting support as needed, all while linking them to a long-term medical home. It has been found that families receiving Care Coordination are often not involved in other community resource programs, finding themselves in great need with few options. MIHS is the safety-net that links families to healthcare and so much more. We are grateful for community partners like Curves that take time to support MIHS and the thousands of families served each year.
