Goodwill Industries of Michiana gets $2.9 million to expand services in northwest region of state

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. - Goodwill Industries of Michiana received $2.9 million from the Indiana Department of Health to serve more families in the northwest region of Indiana.

The department of health awarded nearly $10 million to organizations across the state to expand its Nurse-Family Partnership programming, which provides support for pregnant individuals and first-time mothers to promote healthy pregnancies and early childhoods.

Through the program, specially educated nurses mentor young and first-time moms-to-be during pregnancy and through their child's second birthday, helping them with health and socioeconomic factors that could impact their own health and the health of their child.

The three other grant recipients include:

  • Healthier Moms and Babies - $1.1 million to expand in the northeast region
  • IU Health Bloomington - $210,064 to expand current capacity
  • Goodwill of Central and Southern Indiana - $5.1 million to expand in the Southeast/Southwest/Western regions
