Healthy Families

Healthy Families is a national evidence-based program that aims to promote the health of pregnant women and their babies, improve birth outcomes, strengthen parent-child bonding, and create a healthy environment for the entire family by providing intensive home visiting services to families in Bond County.   

HF is always free of charge—and always completely voluntary.

Families who enroll in HF receive the support they need based on their specific circumstances.

We help parents develop and achieve goals related to what is most important to them, whether it’s school, work, housing, childcare, health, relationships, or other life skills.

Mission

The mission of Healthy Families (HF) is to promote child well-being and prevent the abuse and neglect of our nation’s children through home visiting services.

Impact

Impact on Parents in the Healthy Families program

Healthy Families has been proven to have a significant impact on parents and families. A parent’s personal resources—including knowledge, skills, and attitudes toward parenting—impact their relationship with their baby. Healthy Families helps parents develop their personal resources to improve family functioning, strengthen the parent-child relationship, promote child well-being, and prevent adverse childhood experiences.
