Centering Families

HJAHC Centering Families is a group care model of the Centering Healthcare Institute (CHI). The CenteringParenting model combines one-on-one child health assessment, interactive learning and community building in a postnatal group setting. HJAHC Centering Families will bring a group of 5 to 6 mom and baby pairs for care during their first two years of life. Based on the well-child visits schedule, in the 9 group sessions, the providers will provide well child care and also attend to health and safety issues of mothers.

AIM – Asthma Improves with Management

The goal of the AIM program is to reduce pediatric emergency room visits and school absences for asthma by eliminating exposure to asthma triggers and by improving ability to self-manage asthma symptoms. This is a collaborative effort with the Trenton schools, the City of Trenton and community-based agencies.

Henry J. Austin provides health treatment, case management and community education and outreach.

To learn more about this program, please call Maggie Vasil, Certified Asthma Educator AIM Coordinator, (609) 278-5910. The AIM program is supported through a grant from The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey. AIM is also supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under the Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program.   Asthma Management for Coaches and Athletes was made possible through a grant from Trenton Thunder Charities.
