Family Home Visiting

Scott County Public Health offers home visiting programs that provide families support and guidance.  These voluntary home visiting programs are designed to help families reach goals and connect with community supports.  Public Health works with healthcare providers, early childhood educators, human services and other community services to meet each family’s needs.

Home visitors engage mothers and fathers in a variety of discussions about:

  • Pregnancy health
  • Breastfeeding
  • Parenting support
  • Parent-child relationships
  • Parent and family goal-setting
  • Community connections
  • Health and nutrition
  • Infant and child health, growth, and development
  • Infant and childhood safety and injury prevention
  • School readiness
