Join Us

We each have a role in this movement for Healthy Babies, Healthy Families, Healthy Communities. What is your role?

Please contact us if you are interested in joining! New members must attend a 30 minute orientation, held before each monthly BBC meeting.

Hear what some of our members are saying about the BBC:

“Observing deep and amazing connections and collaborations within a multitude of agencies.”

“The Bill of Rights is the most fabulous and remarkable document to guide our work and the work of others.”

“Gained knowledge and better understanding of the Life Course Perspective.”

“Rich dialogue that bridges individual/family needs with changing/broader community conditions.”

“Re-invigorated, expanded partnership with a target community that needs help.”

“The Bill of Rights has fully taken root. People really respond to it!”

“The BBC has given me the opportunity to meet and come to know so many people representing so many opportunities to enrich and set the right course for our children, their families, and the community.”

“The collaborative continues to be OPEN to new members which leaves me with the opportunity to join, learn and offer input!”

“Word has gotten out about BBC and spurred conversations about Life Course and how our efforts fit together.”

“This is my first meeting- I can feel the connection and energy between members.”
