Home Visitation is a program for families who are parenting for the first time. Families who are pregnant or parenting infants up to three months old can access the program. Home visitors meet with families regularly, often weekly, in the parent’s home to enhance parenting knowledge and skills and to provide support for issues affecting the family. They provide information on child development and child health as well as activities that promote parent/child bonding and attachment. Home visitors also help families access other community supports.

  • Helps families balance daily issues with parenting
