We're here for you every step of the way!
No-Cost Parent Support
Our Home Visiting program supports families with any goals they set, with the child being the center focus.
The first visit can start as early as the prenatal period and continue until the child turns five
The family leads the program by setting their own goals and together with the home visitor, deciding on the number of visits per month
Families can enroll themselves or be referred to the program by community partners
Infant Mental Health Services
A child's most crucial brain development stage occurs from infancy to five years old. With this program, children's well-being and sound mental health are assured through:
A home visiting approach where support is provided to the child within their family unit.
Reflective practice to ensure all family member's needs are met
More Intensive and specialized support is offered on a case-by-case basis
Infants are more vulnerable in their sleep than we realize. We provide valuable information and training to parents and caregivers about how to maintain a safe sleep environment in the home.
We also provide high-quality bassinets to our families, supplied to us by the Early Childhood Education and Care Department.
in the Program
To thank the families for participating in our program and encourage more community members to engage, we provide incentives to all participants.
The incentives we give back to the participants are sourced from:
Partnership with Native Americans (PWNA). PWNA is one of the largest Native American charities in the country and strives to support Native Americans living in remote and isolated communities. Avenues is fortunate to collaborate with them as 90% of Avenues families reside on the Navajo Nation and Zuni Pueblo. PWNA provides items that correlate with family and program goals.
We are also fortunate to receive donated items from Americans for Native Americans (ANA) such as potty chairs, handmade layettes, clothing, water filters, and diapers, which we are able to provide to our enrolled and participating families.
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library
We not only support children in their development at home but in their preparation for a successful academic experience. We are delighted to be one of the affiliates of Dolly Parton's Imagination Library for McKinley County. With this program, children will have access to countless age-appropriate books to support their development. In this program:
We aim to enroll at least 50% of the county's children aged 0 to 5 in the program within five years
Anyone can donate $25 to provide a child with a book every month for a year that is appropriate for his/her age
100% of the donations will be used for the child’s enrollment costs
Collaboration with Community and Organizations
One of the main goals of our program is to support families in becoming more self-sufficient. This means educating families on the different resources that are available within the community, statewide, and at times, nationally. We go above and beyond to meet the needs of our participating families, whatever they may be. We partner with other non-profits and like-minded organizations to make all resources within the community accessible to everyone.
