One of our home visitors will get to know you and your baby personally - in your home or somewhere you are comfortable meeting.

Young parents in Healthy Families are provided with support, information on child development and assistance accessing community resources. In addition to home visits, families have the option to participate in group social activities such as holiday celebrations, field trips and dinners.
