Healthy Families America
Healthy Families America (HFA) is the signature home visiting program of Prevent Child Abuse America, the nation’s oldest and largest organization dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and neglect.
Everyday thousands of HFA family support specialists show how much we value children by partnering with parents to strengthen families and communities.
HFA promotes child well-being and prevents the abuse and neglect of children in communities around the world through family-focused and empathic support provided in the home or community.
Healthy Families America (HFA) is a program for pregnant women, birthing people, and new parents. If you or someone you know is pregnant or they recently had a baby, HFA may be right for you! If you choose to enroll, a specially trained family support specialist will visit with you throughout your pregnancy and can continue to visit until your baby is three years old.
Any pregnant person may enroll if:
- The person is currently pregnant or recently had a baby within the past three months
- The family has WIC, has Medicaid, or meets the income requirements
- Also, you can join as early in your pregnancy as you like!
Healthy Families America encourages fathers, family members and any support people who are important to you to be involved in the visits and learn how they can best support you. You and your family support specialist decide who may be involved.
