Our guest for lunch this week was Chandra Graves, founder and President of Family Focus Health Services, a provider of Maternal Infant Health Programs. The mission of Family Focus is to promote the well-being of children from birth by supporting and strengthening their families in and with their communities. FFHS contracts with registered nurses and licensed social workers to perform in-home visits with Medicaid eligible pregnant women and their babies. The multidisciplinary staff perform health risk assessments to determine their needs and create a plan of care to help mitigated the risks identified. Family Focus offers services that help parents with children ages 0-5 enhance their ability to provide and advocate for their families. Education and support services to parents during the early years can significantly contribute to positive, healthy, child-rearing practices, prevention of abuse and neglect, and success in school. The programs offered strengthen parental knowledge and skills, reduce social isolation, and enhance employment opportunities for the parents.
