Parent-Child Services

Support and resources when you’re pregnant or parenting a young child


Healthy development depends on the quality of the relationship children have with their caregivers. Our Parent-Child Services use a two-generation approach to support parents and caregivers to 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
  • Information about how their baby is playing, talking, growing, moving and acting like other children the same age
  • Insight into the impact parental histories and life circumstances have on parent/child relationships
  • Connections 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.


Women pregnant in their third trimester or families with children from birth to kindergarten are eligible for any one of five St. David’s Center Parent-Child Services. Priority is given to first-time parents with a child under 13 months. 


Participation is voluntary. Families may be enrolled for up to four years, depending on the needs, strengths, and resources of each family.  


This program is free to participants. The cost of services is provided through Hennepin or Scott County.


Self-referrals are welcome. Referrals may also be made by family members, friends, and professionals.
