What is a Home Visiting Program?

Home Visiting Programs are free programs that offer services to pregnant mothers and families with young children.  The home visits can take place inside the home or at a location that the family is most comfortable with.   Through a strength-based relationship,  the family and the home visitor discuss topics that are focused on what the family is most interested in.  Some examples of the topics that families can choose are: positive parenting practices, child growth and development, healthy pregnancy, and healthy child.  Home visitors are also able to help connect families to community services and support.
