Children, Youth & Families

The health and wellness of Vermont’s women, children and families is a foundation for the health of all Vermonters. The Division of Maternal and Child Health carries out this vision with programming across the life course: before, during and after pregnancy, and throughout infancy, early childhood and the school years, with an emphasis on adolescents and young adults.

We provide direct services, linkages and referrals, population-based supports, education and monitoring, quality oversight, and policy and systems development. We work to support professionals who work with children and families in health care, early care and education settings, and with human service agencies.

We work collaboratively with partners across Vermont and nationally to achieve high quality health and health care for children and families. Our work is family-centered, evidence-based and data-driven.
