The other services at the 5716 Wellness include the Covenant Community Care Medical and Dental Clinic on the first floor, The Covenant Community Care OBGYN Clinic is located on the second floor, and our Children, Youth and Family programs are on the third and fourth floors. The partnership of all these programs and the cross-referral of services constitute the integrated healthcare model of 5716 Wellness.
The at-risk families often have many serious needs, helping these families become successful requires multiple and coordinated services. Research shows that an integrated services model that connects families to a wide range of resources and opportunities may be the best hope of bettering their lives. Maelen Irizarry, 23, believes that her family will benefit from the spectrum of services at 5716. Maelen is expecting her third child in two months. She has a son who is three and daughter who is two. Maelen comes to Moms and Babes Too, Inc. for WIC services and has also been helped by the Maternal Infant Health Program (MIHP). “Because of Moms And Babes Too, my kids and I are definitely healthier,” Maelen says. “Not only am I able to get healthy food for my kids and myself, but they have taught me a lot about being a good parent.” WIC subsidies can only be used to purchase healthy foods such as milk and dairy products, whole grain bread, fruits and vegetables, pure juices, cereals, brown rice, legumes and other nutritious items.

When a pregnant or postpartum mom and her children come for a WIC appointment, Hemoglobin testing is done. If necessary, they are educated as to how to increase low hemoglobin with nutrition. Most solutions for our clients are found within the structure of 5716 Michigan Ave. However, if the family requires specialized medical care, we refer them to agencies that can address those needs.
