Individualized parent and-child-focused support

This one-to-one, personalized program is designed to meet your family’s specific parenting needs, whatever they may be. Every family has strengths to build upon. A Healthy Families Advocate will work with you to support you, your child, and your family.

We believe a child’s first and most important teacher is his or her parent/caregiver.


Partnering with a Healthy Families Advocate can give you:

  • ideas to help you bond with your child through daily interactions and play.
  • information about milestones and how to support your child’s development.
  • assistance accessing needed community resources.


  • Live in the 14-county service area
  • Be pregnant or have a child under 3 months of age
  • Be a willing participant
  • No income guidelines
