The partnership and collaboration of Healthy Family Foundation and funding agencies such as Department of Public Social Services, First 5 Riverside, The California Wellness Foundation, Marguerite Casey Foundation and Patrick M. McCarthy Foundation have made possible our Home Visitation Programs.  Services are provided at no cost to families throughout the Coachella Valley.  Highly trained bilingual paraprofessional home visitors provide supportive services to parents, children and families.  Home visitors stress empowerment of families, build on their strengths and abilities and support families as they manage life’s challenges.

Home Visitation programs offer a powerful array of one-on-one, in-home parenting education services with an emphasis on reducing child maltreatment, increasing child safety, promoting health, fostering child development, activities to enhance school readiness, and accessing supportive services from a network of over 140 local community resources.
