With your help and support, we raised over $35,000 for our work that benefits pregnant women, new mothers and families throughout Chester County.

MCHC provides programs to help drive down birth disparities and strengthen parent and child bonds. Home visiting services through our countywide Healthy Start program are offered to help at-risk pregnant women and new mothers in the community connect to prenatal care, health insurance, and emotional support. The Kennett Square Family Center helps parents prepare their children to gain the skills children need to succeed in school. The Family Benefits program combines efforts with other local partnering agencies to assist more than 2,000 Chester County individuals annually into health insurance coverage through Medical Assistance or CHIP. MCHC’s staff also help about 1,200 Chester County individuals per year connect to food benefits.
At this year’s event, moms and daughters of all ages enjoyed a delicious catered lunch, and sampled beautiful nursery-rhyme themed Teapot-shaped cakes designed by local pastry chef Melissa Jenkins. The cakes are generously sponsored by Jennifer McNeil.
Guests were treated to a Fashion Show featuring local boutiques and shops (see below); the show was once again emceed by Ms. Kathy Levine of Nutrisystems.
