Texas Home Visiting
Texas Home Visiting offers two programs for pregnancy mothers and their infants:
The Nurse- Family Partnership helps transform the lives of vulnerable first-time moms and their babies. Through ongoing home visits from registered nurses, low-income, first-time moms receive the care and support they need to have a healthy pregnancy, provide responsible and competent care for their children, and become more economically self-sufficient. From pregnancy until the child turns two years old, Nurse-Family Partnership Nurse Home Visitors form a much-needed, trusting relationship with the first-time moms, instilling confidence and empowering them to achieve a better life for their children – and themselves.
The Parents as Teachers program offers support and guidance for families with young children. This is accomplished through one-on-one home visits, monthly group meetings, numerous developmental and health screenings, and linkages to community resources for families in need. Each Parent Educator is a certified teacher or former administrator within the school system.
