Healthy Families America—NH
Support for Parents                          

Healthy Families America—NH supports parents-to-be, young families, parents who served in the armed forces, and families who need a little extra help and support. The service is free, convenient, voluntary, and flexible. Trained family support specialists start working with families the moment they find out they are pregnant through their child’s third birthday. The family support specialists offer a nationally recognized, evidence-based service in the families’ home or other convenient location they choose. Research shows that home visiting beginning prenatally and continuing through the first few years of a child’s life has a positive impact on children and families[1]. 

Healthy Families America—NH provides assessments for routine child development, safety, and postpartum depression as well as parent education, support, and resource connection. Healthy Families America—NH can help families:

  • prepare to bring their baby home from the hospital
