Parenting, especially for the first time, brings up so many questions and anxieties. With advice coming from almost everyone, it’s hard to keep up with all of the information coming your way. There are programs that can help. Even better, you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home. Home visiting programs will help you analyze obstacles and celebrate milestones. Home visitors offer support for both you and your baby and can be an invaluable resource.

Why use a home visiting program?
Home visiting programs promote maternal, infant, and early childhood health, safety, development, and strong parent-child relationships. Home visiting helps families to: gain knowledge regarding child development, connect with community support services, discover ways to support learning through play and interactions, receive emotional support through challenges associated with raising a child, and access support to get out of dangerous or unhealthy situations.
