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. Families can refer themselves or be referred through a physician,nurse pactitioner or public health nurse. There is no cost for the program. For more information see the brochure.
