Healthy Families of Central Virginia is the proud winner of the 2018 Early Impact Virginia – Local Home Visiting Program Award. This award acknowledges that HumanKind’s Healthy Families program goes above and beyond to support families in Central Virginia by developing creative solutions that meet the unique needs of our community. This is achieved through innovative service delivery and strong community partnerships which result in a high quality continuum of care for families.
Healthy Families is a home visiting service that supports new parents prenatally through the child’s fifth birthday by focusing on positive parent-child interactions and providing education related to healthy development and family functioning. Additionally, we provide opportunities for families to come together and build their support network through playgroups, breastfeeding groups, and peer recovery groups.
At HumanKind, the importance of home visiting with families is deep-rooted in our history. Since 1929, we found that working with parents in their own homes guides and strengthens families by providing one-on-one education and support that is customized to each family’s needs.
At Healthy Families, we believe that every parent wants the best for their child. Through the support of our skilled and compassionate Family Support Specialists, parents are equipped with the tools they need to build healthy, stable families. We are honored to receive this award and look forward to continuing to serve families in Central Virginia and beyond.
