Community Home Visiting Program
The goal of the Community Home Visiting Program is to work with families to maximize the health, safety, and security of their baby; enhance the parent-child relationship; and link the families to community resources and additional supportive services as needed. Our staff provide personal visits, group connections, child screenings, and access to a resource network to families who live within service planning area seven of Los Angeles County.
Parents as Teachers Curriculum
The community home visiting program models the evidence-based Parents as Teachers (PAT) curriculum. PAT is an international early childhood parent education and family support program that promotes optimal early development, learning, and health of young children by supporting and engaging their parents and caregivers. PAT is considered an evidence-based program that focuses on building protective factors within the family. It is relationship-based with a curriculum centering on parent-child interaction, child development, and family well-being. Our parent educators support and strengthen protective factors by using the PAT approach of partnering, facilitating, and reflecting with families, thereby decreasing risk factors and promoting maternal-child wellbeing.
