Give us a call at 419-221-0014. We will discuss all home visiting options with you and find the program that best fits your family.

Pregnant women can have home visits, too. Don’t hesitate to ask.

A Home Visitor will meet with your family in your home. Together, you and the Home Visitor will discuss your family’s goals and dreams for the future. A Family Plan with Goals will be developed to help your family meet these dreams as a family and for your child.

Home Visits are recommended to be held weekly the first 4 weeks then twice a month until your child is six months old but this can be determined by you and the Home Visitor. Home Visitors follow the Healthy Families America model.

Visits consist of:

  • Child developmental screenings including regular checks for walking, talking, playing, seeing, and hearing
  • Information on child development and activities which help children grow
  • Parenting tips to help your child learn
  • Community Referrals as needed
  • Assist with transition to a preschool program by age 3 when appropriate
