Health Access Nurturing Development Services (HANDS) is a free, voluntary intensive home visiting program for new or expectant parents who are parenting other children. HANDS strives for positive pregnancy outcomes, optimal child growth and development, healthy safe homes, and enhancing family independence. We believe that all families have strength and are responsible for their children.

Our trained HANDS staff offer support through pregnancy and after delivery through the early years of a baby’s life. They provide information on ways to make the home safer for babies, on baby care, and child growth and development. HANDS staff also can provide information about community resources. Additionally,, HANDS offers activities that a family can enjoy together to promote positive parent child interaction and to stimulate their child’s brain development.

We like to start working with families during their pregnancies, but we can meet with a family after birth prior to the baby turning 12 weeks old.

Please contact us if you would like more information about this program.
