Healthy Beginnings at Home (HBAH) is an evaluation looking at the impact of providing rental assistance with housing stabilization services to pregnant women, who are living in highly unstable housing, and are at greater risk of infant mortality. HBAH is evaluating its findings to strengthen the evidence for housing stabilization and how it addresses infant mortality, can improve health outcomes for women and their infants. The HBAH project is groundbreaking as it is demonstrating it’s not too late to intervene with housing during pregnancy.

HBAH outcomes show differences between the birth outcomes for the intervention group and the usual care group. The HBAH collaborative believes there is an opportunity to create a pathway to help more pregnant people have healthy babies.

CareSource Foundation received the 2021 HUD Secretary for Public-Private Partnerships for its work to advance the Healthy Beginnings at Home study.
