For Outreach Partners
DSHS welcomes the support of individuals and community groups as outreach partners working to raise awareness about the importance of breastfeeding and the benefits of worksite lactation support.
How You Can Help
You can use your knowledge of your organization or local community to identify ways to engage employers in educating champions within these organizations. Goals for outreach efforts are to:
- Raise awareness of workplace breastfeeding barriers and ways they affect your community.
- Demonstrate how lactation support programs help breastfeeding employees achieve their breastfeeding goals, positively impact community health, and benefit employers' bottom lines.
- Share information about worksite lactation support resources, such as the Texas Mother-Friendly Worksite program and designation.
For additional outreach information to support the Texas Mother-Friendly Worksite program in your community, contact us at TexasMotherFriendlyWorksite@dshs.texas.gov.
Thank you for working with us to help build a healthier Texas.
