To Qualify

Neither of our home visiting programs has an income requirement.

Healthy Families and Nurse Home Visiting can both start services when mom is pregnant. Once Healthy Families starts services, you can continue receiving them until your child turns three. Nurse Home Visiting can serve children through age 20, depending on the child’s health condition.

Our Process

1. Most families we work with come from referrals. You can also make a referral for your own family using the online referral form.

2. We have no applications for these programs, and you don’t need to give us any documents for us to enroll your family.

3. If we get a referral, we will contact you to see if you would like to receive our services.
