Healthy Beginnings offers help and encouragement for parents and families while lessening the opportunities for abuse and neglect.
The Mission of Healthy Beginnings is to provide a cost effective nurse home visitation program that will improve pregnancy outcomes, child health, growth and development, and self sufficiency for program eligible families. The effects of this program will benefit generations to come as these parenting skills are passed from generation to generation.
We provide weekly home visits for families prenatally and these visits continue until the youngest child in the home turns three years old. Nurses weigh the children and provide developmental screening so that we can be sure that the child is developing appropriately. We provide support and role modeling to help make sure that children have the best care possible from their parents. We also provide referrals to other agencies and resources when families have need for them.
