Healthy Families

A Long and Winding Road

  • Ways to support your child’s learning,
  • Ways to work with your child’s feelings and address difficult actions,
  • Ideas to handle your stress,

  • Advice about foods and meals leading to good health,
  • Help with nursing.

Obtain support for your child’s healthy growth:

To Qualify

Our Healthy Families Program looks at many factors to decide if the program is a good fit for you (if you are pregnant) or for your family. Healthy Families has no income guidelines.

Our Process

1. Our staff screens you (if you are pregnant) or your family to see if the program is a good fit.

2. You do not need to submit any documents for the screening.

3. If we decide you qualify, we ask you if you want Healthy Families services.

4. If you accept services, we provide service in your home.

5. We provide services for at least three years.
