Becoming a parent is both rewarding and challenging. It’s important to have support on your journey. Children don’t come with instruction manuals, after all. Home visitors are here to help, so parents can raise healthy and happy children.
Home visiting connects expecting parents and parents of young children with a trained support person. Participation is free and voluntary, and families receive regular support and coaching in the comfort of their own home.
Home visiting benefits both children and parents. A home visit might include:
- Child development information so parents understand how their child grows
- Activities to help early childhood development
- Ways to promote school readiness
- Building positive parent-child relationships
- Tools for managing stress
- Support for parents in reaching personal goals
- Referrals to other resources and services
Our home visitors get to know each unique family over time and adjust services to meet their needs and goals. Families who take part in home visiting say that they feel more confident, capable, and hopeful for their future and the future of their children.
