Prenatal Program for Pregnant Moms

The prenatal program helps pregnant moms get the support they need for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. Both the expecting mom and the unborn baby need regular prenatal care, a healthy diet, exercise and to avoid stress, alcohol or other harmful substances.

The prenatal program includes home visits to ensure moms-to-be get the information and support they need. Once the baby is born, he or she is automatically enrolled in one of our Early Head Start programs.

The first days, months and years with your new baby are so important. The Home Base Program visits the home every week to help you be the best parent you can be. Twice a month, parents and children come to the school to learn together and from each other. We have some funds for transportation and meals are provided.

Older toddlers are ready to be with other kids and learn in a classroom setting twice a week. Once a month, parents and toddlers have “together time” in the classroom.  Two times a month staff visits homes so they can answer questions, provide resources and support your parenting skills. We have some funds for transportation.
