Healthy Families America’s Impact

VNA partners with OneWorld Community Health Center to serve Douglas County’s most vulnerable young families. Healthy Families America (HFA) is a voluntary, no-cost program offered to pregnant women and families with infants who meet certain screening requirements.

The HFA program teaches positive parenting strategies to build healthy parent-child interactions and relationships. Nurses, social workers, and family support experts visit these families regularly until the child’s third birthday.
