B’more for Healthy Babies Seeks AmeriCorps VISTA

B’more for Healthy Babies (BHB) is seeking a full-time AmeriCorps VISTA to scale up a newly launched peer outreach program called the Healing Ourselves through Peer Empowerment (HOPE) Project. The HOPE Project is an interconception (between pregnancies) health initiative for Baltimore women who have experienced a stillbirth or infant death. These women are at the highest risk for having subsequent pregnancies that result in preterm birth, low birthweight, stillbirth, and infant death. The HOPE Project connects mothers with trained peer volunteers—a “maternal health corps”—who themselves have experienced a pregnancy or infant loss. They provide one-to-one support, facilitate groups, and link mothers to crucially needed health and social services.

The AmeriCorps VISTA will serve as the HOPE Project Ambassador. The goal of the Ambassador is to expand BHB’s maternal health corps by building our infrastructure to support the volunteers, cultivating community and hospital partnerships, and securing resources to support the long-term operation of the program.
