Since 2009, Hamilton Health Center has provided free case management services to pregnant families and those with children ages 0-24 months who reside in Harrisburg, Steelton, Highspire, and Middletown.

Free Support

GHHS services focus on improving the body, mind, and social health of mothers, fathers, and children while pregnant and parenting. Services promote:

Specialized Services and Events

Triple P

Free parenting tips available to families with children ages 0-12 years. Does not require participation in GHHS program

Baby Buggy Event

GHHS exists because every child in the Greater Harrisburg area does not reach his or her first birthday. This annual event raises awareness about infant mortality in our community while making fitness, nutrition, and community connections all geared to improve you and your family’s health.

Meet the Team

Part of what makes GHHS such a rewarding experience is the team of dynamic and passionate staff that provide the education and support to families.

Judith

Judith McCrea, MSW, LSW
Director of Social Services

I love working with our social service teams on what and how we deliver our programs so we can bring the best to the families that we serve. I believe there is little as important as supporting the family structure so parents can do their best for themselves and their children. How we support infants and children will determine the future of our world.


Paola

Paola Andujar, BS
Health Educator

I truly enjoy being able to empower our families by providing them with important education about their family’s health and wellbeing. I’m fortunate enough to be able to share my bilingual skills to make services available to our multicultural families in the program. Additionally, the GHHS team is always a pleasure to work with due to the continued dedication and passion for the work we do.


Jessica

Jessica Chance, MSW, LSW
Program Specialist

My position deals primarily with the quality of services that GHHS provides—what we are doing well with as well as what we could improve upon. My favorite part of working at GHHS is being able to see how the quality piece ties into the whole picture of the program.

I enjoy empowering families to live healthy lifestyles. I have background in mental health and child welfare so I am good with answering questions and reaching out for resources specific to those areas.


Yenis

Yenis Grier, BCJ
Case Manager, Trained Doula

My goal is to empower women to be successful mothers and have a fulfilling life and accomplish the goals that they set for themselves. I think “have I encouraged my families?” I try to have fun and not be so serious.


 Yajaira

I’m the first person you’ll greet either in person or by phone. I really enjoy being in a position where I can assist my co-workers or our participants in every way possible.


Lindsay

Lindsay Stiem, BS
Case Manager

I love having the opportunity to be a part of a team that works to serve the women and families of our community holistically. One dimension of a person’s health cannot be isolated from another and GHHS works to ensure needs are being met on all levels. There is fulfillment in empowering families to live healthy lives and reach their personal goals, as well as establish healthy environments for their children.”

 


Alisha

Alisha R. Washington, MS
Case Manager, Accredited Triple P parenting provider

My favorite part about working with GHHS is the chance to help participants see their potential. It’s so fulfilling to see families become self- reliant through their willingness to succeed. My knowledge of child and adolescent development helps me reveal to families the true enjoyment of these challenging stages of their families’ growth.

My role as a case manager provides me with opportunities to educate and empower families.

I am very proud to serve my community by preventing infant and child mortality. I look forward to coming to work every day because I know the work I do is important.  I am grateful to work with a dynamic group of people who are uplifting and truly care about the population we serve.

I am happy to be working for the Greater Harrisburg Healthy Start program. I enjoy working in a department that strives to put a halt on infant mortality by educating mothers and linking them to the appropriate community resources to meet their specific needs. Being bilingual gives me the opportunity to serve native speakers by breaking the language barrier.

As Enrollment Specialist, I enjoy being one of the first points of contact for our clients and take pride in my ability to allow families to feel comfortable in sharing their stories with me.
