Healthy Families Oregon

What is Healthy Families Oregon?

Healthy Families Oregon (HFO) is a free, voluntary home visiting program offering support and education to families who are expecting or parenting newborns.

Healthy Families programs are located in communities throughout Oregon. During home visits (which may be virtual due to COVID-19), each family’s values and strengths are honored. Trained staff support and empower parents to build nurturing parent-child relationships, learn about child development, and access community resources. Families choose to participate in weekly home visits for six months or longer, depending on what they need and want. The visits can continue for up to three years.

Parents supported by their communities can have confident, loving relationships with their babies, who can grow into confident, curious toddlers and kindergartners ready for school and beyond. For the best for your baby, call your local Healthy Families Oregon program today! Find a program near you by using the map below.

Background

Healthy Families Oregon is a multi-site state program accredited by Healthy Families America (HFA), an affiliate of Prevent Child Abuse America – the nation’s oldest and largest organization committed to preventing child maltreatment. In 2019, community HFO programs provided screening and referral services to 4,666 families of newborns (11% of all Oregon births) and evidence-based, intensive home visiting services to 1,961 of Oregon’s most vulnerable families. HFO is shown to increase children’s readiness for school by helping families to raise securely attached, curious children who continue to learn and grow when they reach kindergarten. More about program can be found in the 2019 Healthy Families Oregon Status Report Tables prepared by NPC Research.
