P.E.A.C.E. Project

The Perinatal Equity and Care for Everyone (P.E.A.C.E.) Project provides clients, families and professionals with information about prenatal, postpartum and infant resources available in Howard County. Anyone in Howard County is eligible to request a referral through this program.

The Perinatal Care Navigator assists clients, families or providers in determining which services best meet the client’s needs and interests. The navigator will then link the client to community resources/services and will follow-up on the outcome of the referral. For more information about this project, email [email protected] or call 410-313-7540.
