Healthy development depends on the quality of the relationship children have with their caregivers. Our Home Visiting programs provide support to parents and caregivers to help foster that important relationship.

We offer a continuum of services to respond to the unique needs of each family including:

  • Emotional support for the challenges of parenting
  • Education about child development and realistic developmental expectations
  • Insight into the impact parental histories and life circumstances have on parent/child relationships
  • Referrals to community resources
  • Advocacy to ensure services are received

Our home visitors have a strong understanding of pregnancy, early parenting, early child development, attachment, separation, and loss. We work within the parent-child relationship to strengthen the development of every child and family.
