Healthy Families of Travis County

Healthy Families Travis County is a voluntary, home visiting program whose goals include teaching over-burdened families about maintaining safe, stable and nurturing relationships. Home Visitors reach out to families through visits that focus on the parent-child relationship, bonding and attachment, understanding child development, and learning about community resources. Services are offered to first-time parents. Most referrals come from local prenatal clinics and some are obtained from area high schools. Intake Workers visit clinics and schools regularly to gather referrals.
