Maternal Child Health Program



Our mission is to protect and promote good health for all Sussex County citizens through direct and responsive community endeavors.

Good health comes from good nutrition and good health care.


  • Child Health Conference (Well Baby Clinic) Well-child care for children from birth to 5 years old (school entry).

No fee for children who are underinsured or have no health insurance.

    Delivery of high quality services to Sussex County residents in a county where the local needs frequently far outstrip available resources is only possible through collaboration and tight coordination of services among human service providers. The most recent County Wide Health and Human Services Needs Assessment Recommendations for Action identified collaboration as its number one recommendation.
