Home Visiting Services

The Home Visiting Program provides a family-centered, strengths-based approach which creates stronger partnerships and engagement with parents and improves outcomes for their children. The goal of the program is to engage parents and caregivers by promoting early development, learning and health of the child in their own home where parents and children can interact naturally within their own space and have no limitations.

Visits occur on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis depending on the needs of the family. This program is voluntary with entry beginning before your baby is born, and continuing through the child’s 5th birthday. Parents who have already given birth are eligible for the program on the condition that their child is under 5 years of age. 

Home Visitors Provide:

  • A caring, knowledgeable family support provider to come to your home and give you the information and support you need
  • Community resources
  • Baby care and safety tips
  • Developmental milestones

Key Offerings:

  • Circle of security training
