Home Visiting Programs

The Maternal Child Adolescent Health (MCAH) program, includes both Public Health Nurses (PHNs) and Perinatal Outreach Educators (POE). The MCAH Home Visiting program utilizes a Trauma Informed Approach (TIA) to make home visits to income eligible pregnant women and families parenting a child under 5 years of age. The MCAH Home Visiting-TIA program provides an overview of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and their effects on health, and introduces the impact of toxic stress on the developing brain. 

We work with clients to help identify and reduce barriers to medical care, assist clients in accessing community-based resources, while providing education and support for building resiliency and creating a safe, stable and nurturing environment for families.
