How you start matters- Strong Families start with Strong Support

The first forty days after birth are one of the most important timeframes for new families. It's a time where nourishment and wellness are of the utmost importance. 

Okionu Birth Foundation provides a unique meal provision and group support model for parents in low-income BIPOC families for six weeks after their baby is born. 

The program is intended to improve maternal/paternal/child health, reduce infant mortality and extend preventative services to families with a significant risk factor but without a diagnosed problem. We do this by providing 6 weeks of nutritious meals and group support for new parents.

It's an innovative way of providing support that addresses the needs of low-income BIPOC postpartum families. 

Our Mission-Strengthen lives, families, and communities.

Okionu Birth Foundation is built on a passion for improving the lives of individuals and families. We connect the entire family to the help and services they need, right when they need it. We provide so much more than just food and group support. In partnership with you, we are building strong people, communities, and families.
