Mohawk Valley Perinatal Network works with health and human service professionals and consumers to improve the overall health of communities in the Mohawk Valley. Our mission is to improve birth outcomes and maternal, child and family health, facilitate collaboration among providers and community organizations and advocate for change. We are one of the only organizations in our community to serve as a hub for perinatal information and services for both providers and consumers, providing training and education, making connections, assessing and addressing trends and issues, and assuring access to care for women, children and families. While the Network is concerned with improving birth outcomes for all women and their families, it specifically targets women of low income, in rural areas, the African American community, immigrants, refugees and adolescents, due to the unique barriers faced by women in these groups.
Last year, Mohawk Valley Perinatal Network helped nearly 2,000 adults and children in Oneida, Herkimer, and Madison counties. The assistance we provided resulted in lower health care costs, better health care, and healthier mothers, babies, and children.
We engage in fundraising campaigns and events throughout the year to support our programs. Our hope is that the money we raise can help us expand our programs so that all members of our community can receive the care they need.
The Perinatal Network provides a vital bridge for uninsured and low-income families in our community. Your gift allows us to build on these services – and continue to keep individuals and families healthy.
Mother’s Day Campaign
Is there a woman in your life – a mother, daughter, sister, aunt, or family friend – who has everything they need, but you still want to recognize this Mother’s Day? You can make a donation in their name to Mohawk Valley Perinatal Network to show them how much you care. Or maybe you’d like to remember someone who made a positive impact on your life. Donating to the Perinatal Network this Mother’s Day is a special way to memorialize those significant role models who have passed. With your donation of $25 or more, we’ll send a Mother’s Day recognition card in honor of your special gift.

Run, Sherlock, Run!
Put your thinking caps on! Mohawk Valley Perinatal Network announces the annual scavenger hunt race in the Mohawk Valley. Held each year in October, runners begin at a community location in Utica. Clues will be provided to teams of two, three or four runners, directing them to secret checkpoints in the neighborhood. Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams finding all checkpoints in the shortest time, and a post-race party will be offered to participants.
