Parenting Support

Empowering parents of young children to raise healthy and happy families.

Nurses & Nurturing Nurseries

Having a baby can leave parents both overjoyed and overwhelmed. It takes a village to raise a healthy, well-adjusted child, and VNA is proud to be an expert resource parents can rely on. VNA offers four voluntary home visitation programs for at-risk families with infants or small children. Our goal is to empower parents to maintain self-sufficient, healthy, happy families.



The Growing Great Kids™ curriculum is used during home visits with families. It is a highly-interactive, strengths-based approach that builds nurturing parent-child relationships and promotes parenting skills that support the early learning and development of infants and young children.


Other Services

Families participating in any of the programs have these additional services available to them:

  • Breastfeeding support — Home visits by certified lactation consultants help pregnant women and new moms learn the benefits and the process of breastfeeding, and are provided with ongoing support to meet their breastfeeding goals.
