CAMBA's Initiating Change Around Reproductive Empowerment (iCARE): Through a grant from the New York State Department of Health, iCARE seeks to address maternal and infant health behavior, supports and service systems across three key life stages: preconception, prenatal/postpartum, and inter-conception. iCARE provides high need women and infants with services focused on improved maternal and infant health outcomes to the hardest-to-reach populations in the 11203, 11226, 11233 and 11212 communities. CAMBA's Healthy Families Program reaches out to families living in zip code 11226 (Flatbush) to identify and address financial or emotional stress or other family risk factors that may exist at the time of pregnancy and birth. In the case of existing risk to an infant's health or psychological development, eligible participants have the option of receiving home visiting services. Program services are free and focus on parent/child interaction, effective parent/child bonding, and overall family support. These services may be utilized on a short or long term basis, and are available up to the child's fifth birthday.
