Family Connects (Nurse Home Visiting Program for Parents of Newborns)

Family Connects is a community-wide nurse home visiting program for parents of newborns in Bertie, Chowan, Beaufort and Hyde Counties. Family Connects is the first replication of the promising evidence-based program, “Durham Connects”. Working through local health departments and community leaders, the program identified and supported family needs in 1 to 3 home visits within 12 weeks after birth. The home visit is a “gateway” to community referrals and resources to enhance overall family well-being. More information about Family Connects can be found at: www.familyconnectsnc.org.

This Activity was completed December 2016.
