Safety PIN

  • The Safety PIN grant is a $12.9 million grant that is sponsored by the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) in 2016. Ten organizations in Indiana received funding, including One Community One Family. The purpose of the grant is to help reduce Indiana’s infant mortality rate. OCOF was awarded $2.1 million from this grant to be used for the next four years to aid pregnant women and new parents living in Franklin, Ripley, Dearborn, Decatur, and Ohio counties.

    OCOF’s staff will focus on three populations: high risk, such as pregnant teens and pregnant women with substance abuse and/or mental health issues; at-risk women who are isolated or lack access to services; and the general population.

    Safety PIN provides funding for the following programs:
