What services are available through Healthy Families?

Healthy Families provides free, voluntary, home visiting services that increase parenting knowledge and skills. During regularly scheduled home visits, parents learn about healthy child growth and development and other important information to help their child reach their full potential. Home visitors provide information on a wide range of topics including: age-appropriate activities and discipline options, home safety, dealing with everyday stress and planning for the future. Home visitors help families identify and achieve goals like furthering their education, completing job training, and securing stable employment so they can provide for their children’ needs.

In addition to quality home visiting services, Healthy Families provides resources and referrals to meet specific family needs through the support of private donors and a variety of community-based partners including local agencies, community centers, schools and faith-based organizations.

How can I become a participant?

If you are expecting a new baby, or have a baby less than three months of age, and are experiencing stressful circumstances that indicate you could benefit from home visiting services, we would like to welcome you into our Healthy Families family.
