Join us for networking and education for professionals supporting the perinatal population, including pregnancy, delivery and the first year of a child's life.
This month's topic will be the Texas Family Connects Program and will be presented by Shalyn Bravens, Rachel Farley and Donna Sundstrom.
Presentation on a new Evidence-Based Program model called Family Connects planned for Travis County. It is a voluntary, short-term nurse home visiting program offered to every family with newborn infants to maximize population reach and community acceptance.
Program goals are:
1. To connect with mothers or primary caregivers in order to support parenting skills and self-efficacy
2. To assess each family’s unique strengths and needs
3. To connect the family with needed community services such as; health care, child care, and financial and social support in order to promote family functioning and child well-being
