TYLER, Texas (KETK) – Healthy Start Tyler received a $5,000 grant to promote the sleep safe initiative to encourage families to complete health education and life skills classes offered by Healthy Stat Tyler.

Floor seats, pillows, soothing swings, diapers, wipes, play spaces, bottles, baby carriers and items for moms will all be provided to families in need of maternal health through the donations from Superior HealthPlan.

“The purpose of Superior HealthPlan is to transform the health of the community, one person at a time,” said Superior HealthPlan in a statement announcing the partnership.

Healthy Start Tyler is a program of BCFS Health and Human Services. BCFS Health and Human Services has operated the Healthy Start program to provide clinical care and case management to women at highest risk for poor maternal health outcomes.
