Pittsburgh Partners Launch Promising Family-Centered Care Model: Special Focus on Promoting Parental Well-Being and Healthy Child Development

"This initiative will bridge these gaps by strengthening relationships among providers in the maternal and child health care system and the early intervention system, and training both groups to provide culturally competent, family-centered care."

The Local Funding Partnerships (LFP) program is one of the most competitive annual grant-making programs of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. In 2009, the LFP program received 127 applications; only 11 projects were awarded funding.

To introduce this initiative to the community, the collaborative will host a kick-off celebration for its partners and their families on Nov. 6, 2009, at 6 p.m. at The Children's Museum of P
