All expectant parents and parents of young children must have access to essential supports that help nurture positive parent‐child relationships and overall health and well‐being.
While having a baby is an exciting time for families, it can also be stressful and overwhelming at times. All parents could benefit from additional supports and services during these critical early years.

Quality home visiting programs can increase children’s school readiness, enhance parents’ abilities to support their children’s overall health and well‐being, and improve family economic self‐sufficiency.
