Home Visits Help to Build Strong, Healthy Families

Healthy Families Program Serves Pregnant Women and Parents of Toddlers in Sussex & Warren Counties
The Healthy Families program at Project Self-Sufficiency strives to provide all expectant and new parents with the opportunity to receive the education and support they need at the time their baby is born.

Healthy Families is a nationally recognized home visiting program designed to work with overburdened families who are at-risk for adverse childhood experiences, including child maltreatment. It is designed to support families who may have histories of trauma, intimate partner violence, mental health and/or substance abuse issues. Services begin during pregnancy, or right after the birth of a baby, and are offered voluntarily, intensively and over the long-term.

The Sussex Healthy Families/TIP Home Visitation Program is free and open to pregnant women, single parents and two-parent families. Participants can receive services in their own home, as well as on-site at Project Self-Sufficiency. Other activities and services include:

 

Project Self-Sufficiency of Sussex County is grateful for the involvement of the Healthy Families Advisory Board in the Healthy Families/TIP program.
