Pennsylvania to Increase Home-Based Support for At-Risk Pregnant Women, Families

first_img November 14, 2017 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Healthcare,  Human Services,  Press Release,  Public Health Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf announced today that the Department of Human Services (DHS) received an $11.7 million federal grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration to further support Pennsylvania families through the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program.“Supporting families means giving at-risk pregnant women and families the resources and skills they need to raise children who are healthy in every way, and ready to learn as they grow,” Governor Wolf said. “This federal grant allows DHS employees to visit more families in their homes to provide services to keep Pennsylvania families healthy.”The MIECHV funds will support Pennsylvania’s four evidence-based home visiting programs – Nurse Family Partnership, Early Head Start, Parents as Teachers, and Healthy Families America.Evidence shows that when families receive home-based support, their children are born healthier and are less likely to suffer from abuse or neglect. DHS’ home visiting programs offer voluntary, family-focused home visiting services to expectant parents and families with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Pennsylvania uses evidence-based home visiting models that are proven to improve child health and to be cost effective.“Home visiting programs provide community-based assistance to Pennsylvania’s at-risk pregnant women and their families, so children can be prepared to enter school ready to learn,” said Acting Secretary of DHS Teresa Miller. “The Wolf administration is committed to ensuring our children are safe and healthy and the MIECHV grant will help us to improve maternal and child health, prevent child abuse and neglect, and encourage positive parenting.”The awarded funds assist with programs that foster independence, promote health, encourage positive parenting, screen for risk factors, and equip families with the parenting techniques to provide better outcomes for their children.Through federal grants from the MIECHV Program in fiscal year 2016, home visitors in Pennsylvania made 39,307 home visits to 6,574 parents and children in 3,282 families and served families living in communities in 47 counties across the state, or 70 percent of Pennsylvania counties, of which 22 counties are rural.The regular, planned home visits, teach parents how to improve their family’s health and provide better opportunities for their children. Home visits may include supporting preventive health and prenatal practices, assisting parents on how best to breastfeed and care for their babies, helping parents understand child development milestones and behaviors, promoting parents’ use of praise and other positive parenting techniques, and working with parents to set goals for their future, continue their education, find employment and child care solutions, and access other resources in their community.For more information on Pennsylvania’s home visiting programs, visit: Pennsylvania to Increase Home-Based Support for At-Risk Pregnant Women, Familieslast_img read more

Prosecutors want Zaldy Ampatuan back in jail

first_img “In deference to this Honorable Court, it should now stop extending so much grace, sympathy or concern to accused Ampatuan but has to act firmly and with an iron hand to prevent any untoward contingency while its decision is still underway,” it added. Witnesses testified that members of the Ampatuan family, the Mangudadatus’ rival political clan in Maguindanao, masterminded the crime. On Nov. 23, 2009, a convoy composed of relatives, supporters and media were on their way to file Mangudadatu’s certificate of candidacy for the 2010 elections when they were stopped by armed men, driven to a hill, shot, and buried in shallow pits. Fifty-eight people, including 32 journalists and six motorists who were not part of the convoy, were killed in what is the worst case of election-related violence in Philippine history. “It cannot be gainsaid that the promulgation of judgment on these cases is forthcoming with the prosecution’s strong belief of conviction for accused Ampatuan. The prosecution panel, therefore, is of the view that accused Zaldy Ampatuan would do any last-ditch move towards his liberty, be it resorting to his act of taking flight,” it added. MANILA – State prosecutors have asked a Quezon City court handling the Maguindanao massacre case to order the return of primary defendant Zaldy Ampatuan to detention, fearing he might do any last ditch move towards his liberty with the verdict on the case soon to be released.   In a motion to the Quezon City Regional Trial Court Branch 221, the prosecutors asked the court to “order and direct” Ampatuan’s return to Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City from Makati Medical Center, where he is confined after suffering from stroke in October.center_img Zaldy Ampatuan, one of the primary accused in the gruesome Maguindanao massacre, was brought to the hospital last October after suffering a stroke.

ABS-CBN NEWS Quezon City Regional Trial Court judge Jocelyn Solis Reyes is expected to come out with a verdict on the case not later than Dec. 20./PN “The prosecution panel is not unmindful of the medical condition of PDL (Person Deprived of Liberty) Ampatuan. Unfortunately, it is apprehensive that his alleged hospital confinement under the cloak of being still undergoing continuous physical and occupational therapy may provide hum all the opportunity for a convenient escape,” the prosecutors said. The prosecutors also want to augment security personnel guarding Ampatuan to ensure that he can never take flight. The prosecutors also said that “there is no longer any need” for Ampatuan to remain at the Makati Medical Center as the therapy sessions could be done in the detention facility.last_img read more

Martinez hails impressive Lukaku

first_img The 20-year-old striker scored the opening goal at Villa Park with a clinical first-time finish after 68 minutes and was only denied in the first period by a fine reaction save from Brad Guzan. The Belgian comfortably outperformed compatriot Christian Benteke, who missed a seventh-minute penalty on his return to the Villa side, and now has five goals in as many Barclays Premier League appearances for the Toffees. Roberto Martinez insists Chelsea are getting a good deal out of Romelu Lukaku’s loan spell at Everton despite the Belgian looking every bit the finished product in a 2-0 win at Aston Villa. There are many who feel Chelsea would benefit from that kind of output but Everton boss Martinez is convinced all parties are benefiting from his year at Goodison Park. “We want him to fulfil his potential and he has got a terrific potential to fulfil. That’s what the parent club want too – for him to play every minute, to experiment and to get himself to the next stage of his career,” said the Spaniard, who has now overseen five wins in six league outings. “You can understand with the options Chelsea have they can allow Romelu to go to an environment for 10 months where he can really benefit. Chelsea get a player who can hopefully fulfil the potential we all know he has. “He is benefiting from it and the Everton fans are loving every single second of seeing Romelu playing with energy, focus and quality. “He’s enjoying his football and enjoying the way he is fitting into the squad.” Asked how much Lukaku could still improve, Martinez set no upper limit. “He is getting stronger and stronger and today he was a threat throughout and lasted 90 minutes,” he said. “In many aspects he is getting better and stronger. “He’s as good as he wants to be and that’s the truth. He’s powerful, strong, good in the air, his link up play is impressive, so is his awareness and the positions he picks.” That the game was still goalless when Lukaku struck was hard to believe. The home side should probably have killed the game inside half an hour. Benteke saw a powerful penalty well saved by Tim Howard in the seventh minute and the American denied him again with a well-hit effort across goal. Andreas Weimann somehow contrived to botch a straightforward one-on-one with the goalkeeper moments later and Everton went on to have great chances of their own, Ross Barkley hitting the crossbar with a deflected effort. Villa boss Paul Lambert declined to attack his side for their early wastefulness, despite the result meaning they have taken just three points from a possible 15 on home turf. The glut of early opportunities did not escape the Scot though. “I think we have got to take our chances,” he said. “We should have been three up. But I can’t be too harsh on the lads. “The penalty was a terrific save, I’ve just seen it again, and the second chance Christian did the right thing in going across the keeper. He just made another great save. “They’re big moments if you don’t score. “Their goalkeeper had a really good game but you don’t score when you’re well on top and we got caught.” Press Associationlast_img read more
