Family Connects
Transylvania County

Connecting every child to a healthy future.

"Family Connects 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.

The Family Connects model is an evidence-based approach to supporting all newborns and their families. By reaching all families in a community, Family Connects improves health outcomes at the population level.

Every family needs support after bringing home a baby. The needs are different in each family – from help with feeding and safe sleep to getting information about child care and parenting groups. Family Connects links parents to the individual community resources they need." (https://familyconnects.org/family-connects-model/)
