Your Family Support Worker and Nurse Will:
Healthy Families is a Free and Voluntary Program
A family support worker and a nurse visit you in your home on a regular basis before your child is born and continue until your child is ready for preschool or kindergarten.
Our program is nationally accredited by Healthy Families America® as a provider of highest quality home visitation services. Staff are certified in the use of a nationally recognized curriculum, Parents As Teachers.
Healthy Families Fairfax is a collaboration of two Fairfax County departments – Family Services and Health – and local nonprofit agencies – United Community Ministries, Reston Interfaith and Northern Virginia Family Service.
