Healthy Families America

Our goal in our daily work is to promote child well being, strengthen families, and engage communities with intensive home visiting services that are proven to make a difference in the lives of children and families.

Public Health Solutions has partnered with Nebraska Children’s Home to provide free, evidence-based home visiting services to families in Gage and Jefferson Counties. The visits begin during pregnancy and continue until the child is three years of age. A highly trained professional will provide support, information, and guidance; helping to strengthen parent-child relationships and create a positive environment in which children can grow.

 

Participating families will receive:HFA

  • Free one-on-one weekly home visits from friendly, highly trained family support specialists.
  • Understanding what to expect as a child grows, including regular developmental testing to make sure your child is developing as expected.
  • Everything you need to know about basic infant care
