What is Avenues Early Childhood Services home visiting?
This program reaches out to families expecting their newest child. Instead of having families visit us, we visit them at their most comfortable and convenient setting—their home.
There, the families identify program goals based on the unique needs of their child and family. The home visitor works with them in identifying and following through on the actions needed to achieve those goals. The assigned Avenues home visitor visits their homes regularly from the time the child is in the mother's womb up until he/she turns five years old. During this period, the family can benefit from the program's support in essential child-raising areas such as their development, health, well-being, and safety at home. Parents are also given emotional support to become more confident and effective guardians for their children.
