Home Visits

One of the resources that Welcome Baby offers is a Home Visitation program. As a family in our program, you will have the opportunity to have one of our volunteers come to your home once per month to give you important information about your child's physical, emotional, cognitive, and social development. Because a baby changes so much in a short amount of time, having a visitor come each month will help you know what you should be looking for in your child during the month to come.

A home visit usually lasts between 30-45 minutes. We will begin by asking how things have been going through the transition to parenthood. This includes addressing any concerns you have, questions that may come up, or resources you want to know about. Then, we have a lesson prepared that discusses the changes your child may go through in the next month and an activity you can do with your child to encourage proper development.

Parents have expressed how wonderful it is to have a home visitor. In a short amount of time, the visitor and the parents can become close friends. Some of our families have been with us for a number of years with the same visitor. For more information about our home visitor program, and to sign up to have a home visitor come to your home, please visit our website.
