What is Home Visiting?


My Home Visitor has helped me to be a better parent by giving me more tools and education to allow my daughter to flourish.Kansas mom
As parents, we all need help at some point – raising a child is a tough job! We are their first and most important relationship and teacher. We want to do what is best for our children. Sometimes we need just a little extra help and guidance.

Home visitors can:

  • answer questions about pregnancy or parenting,
  • provide information about local health and support services,
  • help parents prepare for a new baby,
  • offer guidance on healthy development for babies, young children, and families,
  • and much more!
Home visits involve meeting with trained family support staff that are qualified to answer questions and provide guidance on such issues as maternal and child health, positive parenting, child development and growth, safe home environments, learning, and school readiness. You and your home visitor will arrange a visiting schedule that works for your family.
