Build a Healthy Family – At No Cost to You!

Parenting is the most difficult and important job anyone can have.  All parents need support and encouragement, and we believe that as a parent, you have the right to voice your own needs and determine what services and programs are best suited to help you thrive.

The Healthy Families program provides support and encouragement for parents to provide a healthy start for their children. Participating in Healthy Families allows you to build confidence, reduce stress, and maximize the joys of becoming a new parent. Healthy Families helps you and your child grow together.

Services are voluntary and provided at no charge to participants!

How it Works

Healthy Families is designed to promote strong families and healthy children through a variety of services including child development information and screening, connections to community resources and parent education.

By connecting you with the most current information on how babies grow, change, and develop, you can feel confident that you are starting on the right foot with your child. 

The Healthy Families program believes:

  • As a parent, you are the expert in determining your family’s needs.
  • All families have strengths which should be recognized and celebrated!
  • Every child should have the opportunity to reach their potential.
  • Starting parental support early (even before birth) is the key to success.

How can Healthy Families help?

Participants in Healthy Families receive regular visits beginning prenatally, or soon after their baby is born, and can continue to receive visits and support until their child is five years old. A family support specialist visits the family to help establish support systems, enhance problem-solving skills, and strengthen positive parent-child interaction.

Services:

  • Partner with families to strengthen their wellbeing.
  • Help families reach their highest potential.
  • Provide services tailored to individual needs and goals.
  • Offer a trained family support worker to model, educate, and provide proven parenting information.
  • Connect families to appropriate community resources and service organizations based on their expressed needs and concerns.
  • Connect families to appropriate community resources and service organizations based on their expressed needs and concerns.

Services are voluntary and provided at no charge to participants!
