Healthy Families Houston is a free home visiting program for pregnant women or families with newborns. This evidence and strength based home visiting program will assist families in providing their children with nurturing care essential to healthy development. Primary goals of Healthy Family Houston include: family goal setting, child wellness, parenting support, community resources, family relationships and healthy functioning.
There are several ways to become a family participant in our program. One way is through our First Steps Program on the maternity floor of Houston Medical Center after the baby’s birth. Another way is by referral through our partnership with other community resources connected with Great Start Georgia. Mothers and families can also call our Family Support Center to inquire and enroll themselves. For more information, please contact Carla at 478-293-4023.
