Family Home Visiting

Scott County Public Health offers home visiting programs that provide families support and guidance.  These 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.

Scott County Public Health Nurses promote healthy families and safe, nurturing environments for children through home visiting. Visits are voluntary and tailored to individual family’s interests and needs. Nurses engage mothers and fathers in a variety of discussions about:

  • Breastfeeding
  • Community connections
  • Family planning
  • Family relationships
  • Health and nutrition
  • Infant and child health, growth, and development
  • Infant and childhood safety and injury prevention
  • Infant cares
  • Parenting support
  • Pregnancy health
