The Safe Babies Healthy Families program's mission is to support families to ensure safe and healthy children through education, support and resources ultimately ending destructive cycles that can last for generations. We offer prenatal services, childbirth education, parenting programs and play groups. Individualized case management is provided through home visits until your child is kindergarten ready.
To achieve this, we use a compassionate, holistic approach to mentor and assist at-risk families to create health, social and financial supports. These supports are critical to a safe and stable future. We match parents with a caring professional who acts as a life coach to help parents build skills and embrace opportunities that will create lasting, positive change. Ideally, we start working with clients during pregnancy, a critical time to address concerns and needs before the baby arrives to a period of crisis.
Our families remain in our program voluntarily until their child is kindergarten-ready. By partnering with parents who have endured hardships, we celebrate their success as they change the future of their children.
