HRSA-Boston staff donated 75 items to Pine Street Inn’s Pregnant Women’s Program, which helps at-risk, homeless expectant mothers find housing, provides prenatal care, and assists new mothers in caring for an infant. HRSA staff secured donations from USDA and HHS. Through the support of HRSA staff and other Federal partners, the number of donated items doubled, far exceeding expectations.
