VNA’s Healthy Families program helps first and second-time parents manage the demands of caring for a child during the first three years of life. Family-support workers visit the home to encourage new parents by building on their strengths, emphasizing the joys of parenting and easing concerns with education and hands-on assistance.
Healthy Families America services can start before the baby is born with prenatal home visits by our doula. The services are free to those who are expecting their first baby or who have a baby less than two weeks old. Qualifying families must live between the southern Kane County border and the northern border of Elgin.
Participation in Healthy Families America is voluntary. Anyone can make a referral to our program.
VNA Health Care’s Healthy Families America program is accredited by Prevent Child Abuse America. It is funded by organizations such as the Illinois Department of Human Services, Exchange Club of Aurora, Exchange Club of Naperville, INC Board NFP, Start Early and Fox Valley United Way.
