WHO WE ARE
We are social workers, educators, and family support workers who believe every family has the potential to thrive, no matter their resources.
DRUM Healthy Families Inc. (DRUM) is a non-profit home-visiting agency for families with pregnant women and children under the age of 5.
Our holistic program is designed to improve birth outcomes, promote self-sufficiency, and empower caregivers with young children to foster optimal child development.

WHAT WE'VE ACCOMPLISHED
We make more than 2,900 home visits a year.
We've had a less than 1% infant mortality rate in the communities we serve since 1999.
I was getting evicted from my house the same day of my initial home visit. Ms. Cynthia Collins, my family support worker, gave me advice and encouragement and researched housing resources for me. We sat down together and talked about goals, family problems, and much more. I have truly valued her support and patience ."
