Home Visiting - What is it?
Pregnancy and parenting are hard. Home visiting programs give parents tips and tools to make it easier for them to have a happy, healthy family.
• It’s all free and voluntary, which means that families who enroll never pay anything and can choose to stop participating any time.
• Once enrolled, the family gets their own home visitor. This trained professional is available to answer questions, provide parenting tips, and find helpful resources. Depending on the program, the family may meet with them weekly, monthly, or less often.
• Home visiting support can be in person, virtual (online), by phone, or as a combination of these.
