Home Visitation Services
Birth & Beyond Home Visitation program offers family support services and resources to pregnant women and families with children in their homes. We use the Nurturing Parenting Program to deliver evidence-based curriculum in positive parenting. Families are also linked to services at the Family Resource Center and Job Center.
Each year, our team of training home visitors deliver more than 2,000 face-to-face visits with families in their homes. These visits enabled the home visitors to better respond to children and parents in an environment the family is comfortable in. Visits include sharing time, parenting information, a parent/child activity and planning for the next visit. Many parents find themselves looking forward to their visits as so much changes quickly when raising a family
Sharing the Nurturing Parenting philosophy allows home visitors to model the skills necessary to help parents nurture and grow themselves. This gives them the ability to nurture and help their children reach their full potential. Supporting parents through their toughest challenges helps them learn that simply putting one foot in front of the other amounts to climbing great mountains.
Our home visitors often helped to stabilize families in crisis by bringing resources and information to secure stable housing, clothing, food, transportation, respite care, furniture, mental health support, employment, school readiness, legal assistance, and immigration help. Children were able to avoid the Child Protection System and remain with their families due to Birth & Beyond's curriculum and support. Home visitors are bilingual, which allows them to effectively serve our community's diverse population.
