A Healthy Way to Parent
A collaboration between Relief Nursery and Healthy Start of Lane County, this program provides weekly home visits, parenting education, and support to first-birth parents. Families are referred to other Nursery services when needed. The services are offered soon after the birth of the baby and continue through the age of three.
Healthy Start is a voluntary weekly home visitation program for first time parents identified by trained screeners as being most in need of support and services.
- In-Home Parent Education and Support
- Child Development Tracking
- Child Safety Monitoring
- Crisis Response
- Referrals to Services in the Community
These are all services provided by our Family Support Workers when on home visits with families.
