This community impact project will use collaborative evaluation research to inform the design and implementation of a community-based, postnatal intervention. Community and faith-based organizations will participate in trainings that equip community volunteers with the tools, education, and training to provide non-clinical social support to parents during the postnatal period. The outcomes of these trainings will serve as an additional needed layer of safety net for families to complement other structured supports. Community conversations will also be held to raise awareness of the challenges that arise for families throughout the perinatal period and how communities can provide support to prevent and minimize those challenges.
