WHY HOME VISITING

Home visiting improves lives

A child’s first 1,000 days represent a critical window for development. Home visiting services help parents by meeting them where they are and providing tailored support at no cost to them.

This support gives parents the confidence to create positive parent child relationships that build a strong foundation for the future.
