Four groups are working to share ICHRP knowledge and services with families, the African American community, paraprofessionals, and primary care providers.

Ramsey County & Hennepin Counties

Pregnant African American Women and their families can receive help in Ramsey County by contacting the D.I.V.A. Moms Program  (Dynamic Involved Valued African American Moms) at Minnesota Community Care or Nubian Moms at Open Cities Health Center. In Hennepin County, pregnant African American Women and their families can be assisted by the Iya Empowerment Circle at NorthPoint Health & Wellness Center, Inc.. The program, for U.S. born African Americans, provides access to a culturally-focused personal care navigator and community resources to help guide families through the health care system during pregnancy. Family programs host performing arts, speakers, documentaries, and other activities to prepare families for healthy pregnancies and births.  The African American Babies Coalition & Projects provides program publicity and partnership connections for ICHRP.
