HOME VISITING & PARENTING
Home visiting programs gives pregnant women and families, particularly those considered at risk, necessary resources and skills to raise children who are physically, socially, and emotionally healthy and ready to learn.
TEXAS HOME VISITING
We help parents by matching them with someone who can answer questions, give advice, and recommend services. This helpful person lives in your community and visits you in your home or another convenient location. We call this person a "Parent Educator."
Depending on your needs, the Certified Parent Educator will talk to you about things like:
Taking care of more than one child
Learning new ways to keep children happy and healthy
Getting children ready for school
Understanding how important parents are to their child’s learning and well-being

HEAD START HOME BASED SERVICES
Many children and parents receive Early Head Start and Head Start services right in their own home! Home visitors come once a week and work with parents and their children. Together, the home visitor and parents watch and think about the child. They plan ways to help the child learn using parent-child interactions, daily routines, and household materials. A small group of children, parents, and their home visitors also get together on a monthly basis for group socializations.
