Our program is voluntary and families in McKinley County are welcomed and encouraged to participate. We use a strength-based, family-centered approach to guide visits.
Any member of the community can participate in the program by referring themselves or by being referred by another family or partner organization.
Once we receive a referral, an Avenues team member will contact the family within a few days to set up an informational visit.
This is an opportunity for the family to learn more about the Avenues program. If the family decides to sign up, preliminary information and paperwork, including confidentiality agreements will be completed.
The family, together with their assigned home visitor, will decide how many visits they would like per month. This can range from once a week to two times a month, with a minimum visit time of 90 minutes per month. Visits are hybrid: face-to-face and via telehealth.
