Home Visiting / Family Centers

What's new? Get the latest early childhood education (ECE) information and resources directly to your inbox.

Babies don’t come with instruction manuals, and sometimes it can be hard to make decisions when it comes to their care.  A new baby can be stressful if families don’t have help. In Pennsylvania, Home Visiting services can be a great answer for families who are looking for help. Visits are based on the needs of the parent and child and are different for every family.

Information for Families

The information below is intended for providers. Parents, guardians and families can learn more about Home Visiting and Family Centers on the Pennsylvania Promise for Children website and can connect with their local Early Learning Resource Center (ELRC) for further assistance.

Professionally trained home visitors can provide information and help families with:

  • Prenatal care
  • Caring for a new baby
  • Breastfeeding
  • Sleeping
  • Child development
  • Health and nutrition
  • Family supports

Home Visiting services may also help families:

  • Improve their health.
  • Create plans for education or a new job.
  • Use a positive parenting approach.
  • Reduce stress that can lead to child neglect or abuse.
  • Think about how big they’d like their family to become – and how fast they’d like their family to grow.
  • Connect with other resources in their community.
