The Home Visitation program is a one-on-one visit between the expectant mother and the family support specialist. The visits can be scheduled during pregnancy or after birth, depending on the needs of each family. Visits are typically conducted weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly as determined by the family support work (FSS).
Visits are 60 minutes in length and will take place at your home. You will receive support from our staff with:
- Strengthening Parent-Child Relationships
- Promoting Healthy Child Development
- Enhancing Family Well-being
