Home Visiting

is a preventative family support and strengthening program for pregnant and newly parenting families. The program provides health education, parenting support, developmental screening and connections to community resources.

Healthy Families America New Hampshire has trained family support specialists and nurses who visit families in their home, community or wherever they are most comfortable, to offer a nationally recognized, evidence-based service. 

Research shows that home visiting beginning prenatally and continuing through the first few years of a child’s life has a positive impact on children and families. 


Healthy Families America (HFA) is one of the leading family support and evidence-based home visiting programs in the United States. We believe early, nurturing relationships are the foundation for healthy development. Learn more about the Healthy Families America model.

 The Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program gives pregnant people and families, necessary resources and skills to raise children who are physically, socially, and emotionally healthy and ready to learn. Goals for the program are to:

  • improve maternal and child health,
  • prevent child maltreatment,
  • encourage positive parenting, and
  • promote child development and school readiness.
