What We Do

The Empowering Women in Community Leadership for Healthier Families project provides leadership training and education, and supports and facilitates community engagement for women of childbearing age whose children are at risk of elevated blood lead levels and/or at risk of being born with fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS)/fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) in NJ.

The project prepares women of childbearing age as Peer Leader Liaisons (PLLs) to enhance existing state- and community-based efforts to reduce the risk of preventable Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (IDDs), specifically FAS/FASD and those caused by lead poisoning.
