In alignment with recommendations from the National Alliance of Home Visiting Models, Family Connects International advises that all sites continue to provide support to their families through telehealth and telephonic means only.  

Connecting every child to a healthy future

Family Connects International® envisions a world where all children and their families have access to a continuum of community-based care to support their health and success. The Family Connects model is an evidence-based and successfully demonstrated program that connects parents of newborns to the community resources they need through postpartum nurse home visits.

Supporting families during the pandemic

In late March, as the novel coronavirus pandemic began its crescendo, Family Connects International advised all Family Connects sites to begin delivering nurse home visits via telehealth and telephone. This was no small endeavor. New protocols and new ways of reaching-out to families with newborns had to be developed quickly, but a strong commitment to serving families with newborns informed all discussions and planning.
