CENTRAL INTAKE

central-intakeAs part of the Partnership for Maternal and Child Health of Northern New Jersey, and funded by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services, the Improving Pregnancy Outcomes initiative addresses the medical, social, and mental health of the community through the use of Community Health Workers (CHW’s) and a Central Intake system. Together, they are designed to have a significant and positive impact on the overall well-being of the county’s residents.

The purpose of Central Intake is to increase screening, referrals and/or linkage of pregnant women and women of child bearing age to needed services within the county. Central Intake will aid in accessing the most appropriate services in an efficient manner through referrals and follow-up. It will also coordinate with outreach to locate women/families without telephones to achieve contact for an initial assessment and medical care preconception.

For more information about the Partnership’s Central Intake Programs serving Bergen, Hudson, Morris, Passaic, and Union Counties please click here.
