Home Visiting Makes an Impact

We provide high quality home visiting programs for teen and young parents. Our staff are trained in and use the Parents as Teachers curriculum as well as the Healthy Families America program model. Home visitors support parents, nurture parent/child bonds and help parents understand the stages of child development. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures: “Decades of research in neurobiology underscores the importance of children’s early experiences in laying the foundation for their growing brains. The quality of these early experiences shape brain development which impacts future social, cognitive and emotional competence. This research points to the value of parenting during a child’s early years. High-quality home visiting programs can improve outcomes for children and families, particularly those that face added challenges such as teen or single parenthood, maternal depression and lack of social and financial supports.”
