In 2011 Community HealthNet received a grant from the March of Dimes of Indiana to implement a CenteringPregnancy™ Program. In response to the favorable outcomes of CenteringPregnancy, Community HealthNet, in 2018, received additional funding to implement CenteringParenting. Our kickoff was held in January 2020 followed by the first CenteringParenting group in February 2020.
