The Healthy Family Program provides support to families with children, including children with special needs. This is a voluntary home visitation program. Services are started prenatally or shortly after birth and may continue until a child is 5 years of age. There is a screening tool to make sure the program fits each family. Family home visitors promote healthy childhood growth and development, positive parenting and parent-child bonding. Home visitors link parents to other services and programs in the community.
Physical activity is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. For information and tips about being or becoming more active, visit:
