The Partnership Center Newsletter

April 27, 2010

In This Issue:


Dear Partners,

As April comes to a close, we want to highlight the innovative Text4Baby resource for our new and continuing e-newsletter subscribers. The monthly update below provides an overview of this public-private partnership in which HHS participates.

Also this week, please see our Featured Update for information about National Child Abuse Prevention Month and great resources for establishing prevention efforts in your community. The Children’s Bureau at the Department of Health & Human Services has a very helpful website that I encourage you to visit.

And as always, we include an updated listing of grants for which nonprofits are eligible to compete.

Sincerely,

Alexia Kelley, Director
Center for Faith-Based & Neighborhood Partnerships
US Department of Health & Human Services

 Empowering America's Grassroots

Featured Update

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month

This last week of April, we’d like to recognize National Child Abuse Prevention Month. As President Obama said in his Presidential Proclamation of National Child Abuse Prevention Month:

“Our children are our most valuable resource, and they need our support to thrive and grow into healthy, productive adults...Every child deserves a nurturing family and a safe environment, free from fear, abuse, and neglect.”

Please take some time to visit the Department of Health & Human Services’ Child Welfare Information Gateway’s website for great resources on preventing child abuse and strengthening families. It includes tips on developing programs to prevent child abuse, raising public awareness, reporting suspected child maltreatment and Spanish-language resources.

Text4Baby: Monthly update

Text4Baby is now 11 weeks old! In case you missed it, here’s how it works: women who sign up for the FREE service receive three SMS text messages each week timed to their due date or baby’s date of birth. Text4baby messages also connect women to local clinics and support services for prenatal and infant care. It’s a great resource for expectant women and new mothers to stay healthy.

To sign up, text the word “BABY” to 511411. For text messages in Spanish, text the word “BEBE.”

Here is a sample of an actual Text4Baby message delivered to subscribers: So hungry you’re eating for two? Remember, you may only need about 300 extra calories a day. That’s 1 extra cup of low-fat milk, a banana & an egg.

To learn more, visit http://text4baby.org/register.html. Or watch a video of a recent webinar presentation, “How to Promote Text4baby to Your Constituents.”
