Resource Mothers

Announcement of New Richmond City Resource Mothers Provider

VDH is pleased to announce that Urban Baby Beginnings has been selected as the new
Richmond Resource Mothers program site. Urban Baby Beginnings
has a 25-year history in building community-based programs that address the unmet needs
including center-based childcare, a regional diaper bank, and a maternal health home visiting
program and hub for families in crisis. The grant funding awarded to UBB is $99,999.81.
Urban Baby Beginnings will begin the Resource Mothers program operations on January 1,
2021.

After almost thirty-seven years of providing a combination of social support, education and
practical assistance to teens experiencing the crisis of a teen pregnancy, the Richmond City
Health District (RCHD) Resource Mothers Program (RMP) will be transitioning to another
services provider with our last effective day of services being December 31, 2020.  Until that
date, RCHD RMP will continue to provide virtual services for our young mothers, and as of
December 1, all new teen referrals will be directed to other local agencies.  All teens remaining
in the program in December will be transitioned to the new home visiting services provider.
The Virginia Resource Mothers Program and the RCHD RMP are truly grateful for the referrals
and support the community has afforded us over the years.  It is impossible to fully express our
deep gratitude for your concern in helping these young women to make decisions to have healthy
babies and to create a good life for themselves and their children.  Providing pregnant and
parenting teens with the best service and support remains our top priority.

If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact, Consuelo Staton, State Resource
Mothers Program Coordinator at consuelo.staton@vdh.virginia.gov.

Once again, thank you for your support and partnership.
