Healthy Families-TIP is a free parenting and support program. Families referred to the program will receive an in-depth assessment of their needs and concerns. Based on that assessment, families may be offered support through our home visitation component or receive support through our referral and linkage component.
Home visitation services include information on child development, positive parenting practices, and child health and safety. Families also receive information and links to community agencies, services, employment, and education opportunities. Families can remain in the program until the child turns 3 years old.
Families may also be offered support through our Family Case Management Component. This component assists parents in identifying barriers to independence, developing goal plans, and gaining access to community support networks.
In addition, families receiving TANF or Emergency Assistance (EA) for a child 12 months old or younger and pregnant General Assistance (GA) clients can receive up to 10 hours of non-core activity credit until their child is 12 months old.
PAT is a free and voluntary program that focuses on supporting parents as their child’s first teacher. A Parent Educator will provide home visitation services that include information on child development, parent-child interaction, and family well-being through the use of curricula and activities. Group meetings are offered once a month to foster relationships with other families and the community. Your family is welcome to participate until your child is 3 years old.
