Invest in maternal and child health

Support early childhood mental health services by:



Healthy social-emotional growth in infants and toddlers provides an essential foundation for early learning, school readiness, and long-term success.


Support the Georgia Department of Public Health’s Maternal Child Health Programs by:


  • investing in reimbursement rate increases for the Babies Can’t Wait workforce, which can include physical
    therapists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, special instructors, and service coordinators
  • allowing Medicaid reimbursement for the Georgia Home Visiting Program. Evidence-based home visiting
    connects caregivers with a trained professional who supports them during the early stages of raising a family.


Early intervention cultivates developmentally appropriate skills, contributing to the likelihood that children will succeed in the K-12 system and attain self-sufficiency as an adult.
