Home Visiting Partner Agencies

Women who deliver at a Welcome Baby hospital can receive free bedside support from a Welcome Baby Hospital Liaison. The Liaison helps new moms find community resources that can help their family, and she provides tips on breastfeeding, infant care and development, bonding and attachment, and maternal self-care. She also explains the Welcome Baby program and other home visiting options, if they are available. All are FREE.

Healthy Families America and Parents as Teachers logos

Moms who opt to participate in Welcome Baby receive five in-home visits over the next nine months (at a time and place of their choosing). Others, who might benefit from more extensive or more frequent home visits (for up to five years, in some cases), may choose to receive free services from one of the partner agencies below. These home visiting programs use either the Parents as Teachers (PAT) or Healthy Families America (HFA) model, both of which are nationally respected and have been proven effective in independent research studies.
