Home Based Services

Pro Action’s Resilient Children and Families Home Based Services provide family support services and parenting education to enrolled families in their homes. Home Visitors support family engagement in all aspects of the program to strengthen family protective factors and encourage family resilience using supportive services, education on child development, offering community referrals, and supporting families with their goals.

Enrolled children receive periodic developmental screenings or assessments at least two times per year. In addition, child development, parenting, and family strengthening curricula is provided based on needs of families. Home visitors support successful transitions to other formal or informal services in the community and provide access to resources as needed.

Services:

  • Increase Positive Parent-child interactions: The love you have for your children and your warm, responsive interactions support their trust in this wonderful world. With your love and interactions, they will grow and thrive.
  • Provide Development-Centered Parenting: Share what you see your children doing. Your home visitor will help connect those behaviors and actions to what is happening in their development.
  • Encourage Family Well-Being: You are building a healthy, nurturing environment for your children. Your home visitor is there to broaden your knowledge as you make decisions for your child and family.
