Healthy Families is a voluntary home visit program that focuses on enhancing child welfare, health and development. Using a relationship focused approach, Family Support Workers visit with families prenatally or within three months of birth to equip them with tools and resources needed to create strong, lifelong relationships with their children. Through this approach, Healthy Families promotes positive parenting skills and parent-child interaction and attachment, optimal prenatal care, child health and development and enhanced family self-sufficiency to ultimately create safe, stable and nurturing relationships and environments.
