Arlington County is one of the richest counties in the US but almost 3,000 children under age four live at or below 200% of the federal poverty line ($27,750 for a family of four). The majority are underinsured and experience obstacles to care including inadequate transportation, lack of willing healthcare providers, language barriers, childcare needs, and the consequences of missed work. Founded in honor of a young mother of three who died in a tragic accident, JB-LF meets families’ basic needs so that they can bring baby home safely (car seats, nursing supplies, safe sleeping areas, transportation funds), raises awareness about and advocates for increased access to (better) pre- and post-natal care (innovative telemedicine programs have been successful here), and conducts research on the state of maternal health for women in Arlington with low incomes – research designed to effect long-term change.
