MANCHESTER, NH – New York-based one2one USA Foundation has awarded Amoskeag Amoskeag Heallth a $45,000 grant to support the organization’s work in providing care to pregnant and parenting women who are trying to maintain their sobriety. This is the second year in a row that one2one USA has awarded this grant.
Proceeds from the grant will fund a full-time Certified Recovery Support Worker (CRSW) who will support the Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) and Perinatal Substance Use Disorder (SUD) programs. One of the primary responsibilities of the role is to support pregnant women grappling with SUD. The CRSW will connect these pregnant women with prenatal care and MAT services. Additionally, the CRSW will also work to engage all women of childbearing age and connect them with early prenatal care, preventative health care, behavioral health care, and SUD treatment. This position is expected to reach about 100 pregnant or parenting mothers with SUD in need of prenatal care and parenting supports.
