A Good Life Begins with a Healthy Start
Healthy Start is a home visiting program for young, first-time parents who are pregnant or caring for their first child who is under 12 months of age. With Healthy Start, young parents get consistent, non-judgmental support for themselves and their babies. Early support and intervention promotes strong parent-child bonding, healthy child development and optimal brain development, all of which lead to school success.
Our focus is on strengthening and empowering young parents to be able to give their babies a Healthy Start. Family Support Specialists meet with the family each month in their home to provide:
Training on positive attachment and parenting skills
Information on child development and health care
Education, social and group activities
Family-centered goal setting
Links to community resources
The program is free, voluntary and open to all parents under 24 years old. For more information, call 425.747.4937.
