In-Home Family Education

The West Virginia In-Home Family Education programs of Healthy Families America, Maternal Infant Health Outreach Workers, and Parents As Teachers are free and voluntary programs providing parenting education and support to families during pregnancy and until children are at least three years old.  These community-, strength-, and research-based programs build protective factors which enable families to deal more successfully with whatever challenges arise, thereby reducing the need for more costly services.
