Kenosha LIHF Collaborative
Action Agenda Priority Topics: Maternal Wellness and Housing

The mission of the Kenosha LIHF Collaborative is to eliminate the gap between black and white infants in the occurrence of premature births, low birth weight, maternal complications and other causes of infant mortality, and improve community conditions and social factors that impact health.

To ensure that all community residents have access to good health, Kenosha LIHF takes a broad view of the many social factors that impact health: stress, education, housing, childcare, poverty, transportation, jobs, food and nutrition and quality of healthcare. The Collaborative seeks to establish common goals and create strategies that promote good health, including healthy pregnancies, improved birth outcomes, and father involvement.
