The Pollywog Project was developed to align health care, parenting education, and early childhood services for children, prenatal to age five, and their families in Linn, Benton, and Lincoln counties.
Initially funded by IHN-CCO through the Early Learning Hub, the project partners with five local hospitals, social service organizations, public health and education, as well as leveraging our parenting education collaborative, the Parenting Success Network. Pollywog staff assist families in signing up for prenatal and parenting classes, access parenting support, and refer to appropriate primary health care, child development, and early learning opportunities.
Pollywog is a partnership between LBCC Family Connections, IHN-CCO, Samaritan Health Services, and the Early Learning Hub of Linn, Benton & Lincoln Counties.
