ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Healthy Families Boston is a voluntary, free home-based family support and coaching program that supports first-time parents age 23 and under to help them create stable, nurturing environments for their children.
The program matches parents with trained professionals who visit families’ homes to provide support during pregnancy and the child’s first three years of life. Home visitors teach parents about proper baby care, promote nurturing and attachment, practice effective parenting skills, and ensure parents have a solid understanding of healthy child development. They also counsel parents on achieving personal goals such as going back to school or securing a job.
Catholic Charities Boston is proud to partner with Children’s Trust and the Massachusetts Home Visiting Initiative to provide Healthy Families Boston. Information about Catholic Charities Healthy Families programs in Haverhill or Merrimack Valley may be found here.
