Serve. Connect. Grow.

Our home-based programs are designed to support the unique needs of each family through comprehensive services delivered in the home environment.

Our home visitors honor the essential role of parents and primary caregivers in each child’s life. During their time together, home visitors partner with each family to celebrate family strengths, identify challenges, and set family and child goals that reflect their individual needs, culture, and values. They provide free screenings, information, encouragement, and resources to support healthy attachments, child development, positive parenting, family stability and well-being, and much more.

Goal topics may include:

  • Nurturing and strengthening parent/child bonds
  • Help for caring for young children from pregnancy through five years of age
  • Support for healthy child development specific to each child’s age, stage, and abilities
  • Learning about age appropriate expectations, and improving parenting skills to address challenging behavior
  • Understanding and coping with the stressors of parenting young children
  • Support for mental, physical, and emotional health and wellness
  • Access to basic needs such as food, heat, and housing
  • Access to employment opportunities and continued education such as GED, job skills, and other employment readiness programs.
