Through regular visits in the home, FNC staff help families deal with crises and emergencies by working with the parents to locate resources and solve problems.
Home-Based Services (Home Visitation)
The Home Visiting Program focuses on meeting families where they’re at and supporting families in their homes. Each month our Care Coordinators focus on:
- Fostering healthy attachment and bonding
- Supporting healthy parenting skills
- Monitoring the child’s development and well-being
- Enhancing protective factors
This year the Home Visiting team deepened their work by shifting the program focus from baseline assessment and crisis support to the provision of high quality in-depth family support for critical areas of attachment, parenting skills, and child safety. Through shared activities, modeling, supportive problem solving, and developmental guidance during home visits, families learn that they can build warm, nurturing relationships with their children, while simultaneously providing healthy boundaries that support their child’s safety and healthy development.
