Every Donation, large or small, makes a difference in the life of a child.

Since 1996 Healthy Beginnings has been providing health and development screenings to Central Oregon children, from birth to five years old. When issues are identified we provide parents with referrals and consultations.  During the past 26 years we have screened over 13,000 kids and made a difference in so many young lives.

COVID-19 has impacted everyone, but studies are showing that our little ones are particularly vulnerable to the effects of masking, social isolation, and remote learning. We are now adding a new COVID impact component to our screening protocols, to better identify those with developing issues. Clearly, our screenings have never been as crucial as they are today!

Our services have always been completely free and we rely on generous contributors to fund our work. Your gift to Healthy Beginnings will be used to cover the costs of providing health and developmental screenings, family consultations and referral follow-ups.

We want to make sure no child enters kindergarten without the glasses they need to see the board, the hearing aids they need to hear the teacher, or the social skills that will help them make friends. Please help Healthy Beginnings efforts to eliminate these obstacles for our children and ensure they are happy, healthy, and prepared to succeed in school and in life.
