Health and prevention begin at home. The Healthy Families program provides services to pregnant and postpartum women and their families through home visits from our professional nursing staff.
We support healthy habits for the entire family unit, such as breastfeeding, routine doctor visits and immunizations, home safety and injury prevention.
We provide information on positive parenting skills to promote parent-child bonding, reduce family stressors and decrease the incidence of abuse and neglect. Our goal is to help build and support strong, healthy families.
The program is open to pregnant women living in Phelps or Maries counties that meet income guidelines and have not participated in the program before. Applicants must be willing to receive home visits from our caring nursing staff.
For more information, call 573-458-6010 and we will walk you through an eligibility screening.
