Cradle Kalamazoo

In January 2014, YWCA Kalamazoo created the Kalamazoo Infant Mortality Community Action Initiative, which has grown from an abstract idea, to a large collaborative effort: Cradle Kalamazoo (Cradle). The Cradle collaborative encompasses a solid commitment from community partners, several healthcare institutions, key funding agencies, local academic institutions, multi-denominational faith-based organizations, and both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations: all engaged for the reduction of racial disparities of infant mortality rates in Kalamazoo. Although YWCA transferred management of Cradle, the agency remains a vital partner in advancing the goal of reducing infant mortality disparities through strategic objectives that include health equity, community engagement and home visitation programs.

Childcare is available. Call (269) 345-5595 ext. 305 or email Tami Rey: trey@ywcakalamazoo.org.
