Healthy Families America

Prevent Child Abuse America implemented Healthy Families America (HFA) in 1992, building on two decades of research in the field of home visitation. HFA is a nationally-recognized, voluntary service that connects overburdened expectant parents and parents of newborns with free child development assistance in their homes. Well-respected, extensively- trained assessment workers and home visitors provide valuable guidance, information and support to help parents be the best parents they can be. Based upon our years of experience and evidence-base, we know that home visiting promotes optimal long-term mental and physical health of parents and their children.

“Having a child can be challenging… there are really no words to describe the feeling but having somebody, no, having a whole entire program full of encouragement makes every day easier.”
