Altruism Media, Inc.
2023 Nonprofit Catalyst Grantee
Location: Kansas City, Mo. (Jackson Co.)
The Maternal Health and Infant Center owned and operated by Altruism Media, Inc. (DBA Altruism, Inc.), helps pregnant individuals receive the level of care that supports health, emotions, and needs individuals may have at home. This means providing exams to help mom and baby stay healthy, while also providing support for other needs like food, diapers, clothing, car seats, utilities, among other things.
The MaIH Center will pair expectant moms with a doula who will help with birth planning, provide education about pregnancy, and help prepare for baby. The doula will also be there to speak to doctors and nurses during labor and delivery. The organization’s midwives provide prenatal exams to support a healthy pregnancy and delivery. Post-delivery follow up care is also provided.
The best part of all, services are free to those who qualify. This includes Medicaid-covered pregnancies, and individuals without insurance. Services are provided at a clinic in Lexington, Mo.
The organization also has Kansas City offices that provide marketing and digital media services to other nonprofits. Its mission is to empower communities to thrive equitably by equipping them with information and resources that advance whole-person care.
Volunteer opportunities not available to the public at this partner organization.
