Healthy Families

STEUBEN COUNTY RESIDENTS

Healthy Families Steuben staff strive to talk with all expectant parents and parents of newborns in the communities we serve. Our goal is to identify strengths and challenges prenatally or at birth and provide appropriate information and referrals to help babies get off to a healthy start. Healthy Families services are always free and voluntary and your information and privacy is always protected and respected. To fill out a referral, use this link:  Referral Form

At Healthy Families we believe early, nurturing relationship are the foundation for healthy development – and that childhoods last a lifetime! Our evidence-based, in-home support is designed to help parents in Steuben County build a strong foundation for raising happy, healthy, safe, and smart children.

Healthy Families helps parents bring out the best in themselves by tapping into the skills they already have. Our partnership can begin as early as the first trimester of pregnancy and last until the child reaches school age.

Research shows Healthy Families works for many families, from first-time parents to families with other children. In-home support that is based on a family’s specific circumstances and needs can make all the difference. Families have healthier babies, demonstrate better knowledge of parenting and child development, create positive family bonds, develop connections to community resources, and have children who do better in school.

Check us out on YouTube for more information on our program, parenting tips and kid-friendly activities.
