Healthy Families Massachusetts is a statewide home visiting program available for first-time parents age 20 and under, funded by the Children's Trust Fund.
The program provides home visits, prenatal and parenting education, parenting activities, and groups. Healthy Families staff seeks to nurture, strengthen, and support families in their physical, emotional, and social development. This is accomplished with a cornerstone of home visitation, strong community collaboration, and a commitment to quality for enrolled families.
Each family is provided with the tools to create their optimum healthy family by respecting their cultural beliefs, by valuing their diversity, and by building upon their inherent strengths. The families lead this initiative. The Healthy Families staff listen, guide, and follow.
