The Maternal Infant Health Outreach Worker Program (MIHOW) works with pregnant women and families with children up to three years of age. MIHOW utilizes Home Vistors to provide education regarding pregnancy and early childhood development, support, encouragement for healthy lifestyles and resource referrals. MIHOW Home Visitors become advocates, as well as educators, for those enrolled in the MIHOW program.
