What is Home Visiting?
Babies do not come with instruction manuals, but home visiting may be the next best thing, especially during this time in a child’s life. The prenatal period and the first years of life are important times for brain development that can lead to future success. Home visiting gives family support and education through planned, regular visits with a trained home visitor based on a family’s needs and schedules. Home visiting is a voluntary program, and home visitors work with parents on parenting skills as well as family bonding before birth and as children grow up.
