Several Programs Offered for Athens County Mothers

The Athens City-County Health Department is teaming up with O'Bleness Hospital to offer free support to Athens County mothers. Registered nurses are available to visit mothers and their newborns at their homes free of charge.

Nurses will conduct home visits to answer any questions mothers might have and provide information about safety, healthy development and community resources and support. Mothers will also receive a gift bag to get their babies off to a healthy start.

Also offered by the Athens City-County Health is the Cribs for Kids project, which provides free portable Graco Pack N’Play to Athens county parents and caregivers who may not have a safe place for their baby to sleep.

Home visit referral forms and more information on these programs are available below.
