Description:

This specialized program is specifically designed to promote healthy pre- and post-natal care, prevent child abuse and neglect, create stronger families and ensure healthy child development.

Healthy Families Jamaica (funded through NYS Office of Children and Family Services) is a comprehensive program for both pregnant and parenting families that provides case management, home visits, support groups and other resources in order to ensure that children up to age five meet developmental milestones. The program also promotes positive parenting and parent-child interactions while discouraging child abuse and neglect through skills-based education, referrals to other agencies, health education, testing and supporting a family's economic stability.
