As part of the program, a health worker visits the families every week.

"And in that process," Program Coordinator Sophie French said, "they’re learning a lot about health pregnancy, parent-child bonding, how to play with their baby."

Councilwoman Missy Mosby introduced the resolution because she’s concerned over what she sees as a lack of public input in INDOT’s long-term plans for the expressway.
