The Home Visiting Program (HVP) resides within the Utah State Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). DHHS funds and supports local Health Departments and not for profit agencies implementing an evidence-based home visiting program.
HVP supports evidence-based models that have a positive impact on the families who participate. Home visits are tailored to the needs of the families served and can take place in the family’s home. Home visitors may accommodate to visit families in an office, park, or wherever the family is most comfortable.
Home visiting professionals provide visits and services to pregnant women and young families who would like:
A program for first time moms, beginning during their pregnancy where a nurse provides one on one support, advice, information needed to have a healthy pregnancy, until the child turns two years old.
A proven home visiting program providing one-on-one support for parents during the critical early years of child development ages zero to five.
An evidence-based, culturally tailored home-visiting program for Native American families to promote optimal health and wellbeing for parents and their children, ages birth to 3 years old.
Home Visitors want you and your family to have a great experience with your child.
They respect your values and will give you simple ideas to maximize your child's development and your family's well being.
