Extra Support for Families in Need

For women or families who need extra support, we can help you by:

  • Identifying your needs
  • Providing information regarding supports and services available in your community to help your family's needs
  • Providing telephone support.
  • Linking you to community resources, programs and supports.
  • Providing a professional service coordinator to help you contact and arrange support and services.
  • Providing you with blended home visiting from professionals and trained family visitors to help you to develop and improve parenting skills.
This program, called Healthy Babies Healthy Children (HBHC), is a free, voluntary, confidential program for expectant parents and families with young children up to age 3. The goal of HBHC is to connect you to services and resources in the community that help promote healthy child growth and development.
