The Empowered Beginnings (EB) initiative of Another Choice Youth and Family Outreach (ACYFO), is a dedicated effort to improve the maternal health and well-being of Black and Latina women in East Harlem. Recognizing the unique challenges faced by these communities, we aim to provide comprehensive, culturally-sensitive support that empowers mothers-to-be with the knowledge, resources, and care needed for a healthy and thriving pregnancy journey.
The Empowered Beginnings program is designed for expectant Black and Latina women residing in East Harlem, with a focus on those facing socio-economic challenges and systemic barriers to healthcare access.
