Healthy Beginnings has served Central Oregon for over 20 years by providing free comprehensive health and developmental screenings to all children under the age of five. About 38% of children in Oregon will arrive to kindergarten with some sort of behavior concern or barrier to learning. Of those children who have an identified need, only 1 in 6 will graduate high school.

At Healthy Beginnings, we believe designing a culture of care starts by caring for our youngest citizens to give them the best chance at a bright future.

When we can connect with families during the critical first five years and identify concerns as early as possible, we increase the chance of that child arriving to kindergarten ready to learn, contribute and thrive. When families of young children start the school year with a sense of belonging, the community benefits on multiple levels: increased parent engagement with school, higher graduation rates, increased social/emotional abilities, quality workforce and a stronger community. At Healthy Beginnings, we believe designing a culture of care starts by caring for our youngest citizens to give them the best chance at a bright future.

At Healthy Beginnings, we believe all families deserve multiple pathways to caring for their children. We are the only program of its kind in Oregon. We are a pediatric mobile health clinic that meets families where they are, for free with the belief that everyone is doing the best they can, and together we can create a strong future for Central Oregon children and families.
