The Montgomery County Maternal and Early Childhood Consortium is a collaborative effort between county human service agencies and private, non-profit agencies providing home visiting services to families, pregnant women, and children up to age three. The purpose of the consortium is to collaboratively, and with coordinated efforts, bring awareness, education, and link the community to the many effective home visiting resources available in Montgomery County. 

The Montgomery County Maternal and Early Childhood Consortium (MECC) believes that a collaborative prevention approach can lead to families receiving the support they need, which will in turn promote positive birth outcomes, family stability, and healthier communities. Montgomery County is a community with a variety of effective and evidence-based family support programs that are proven to have positive outcomes and be beneficial to families,  pregnant women, and children up to age three.
