What is Healthy Families Oregon?

Healthy Families Oregon (HFO) is a free family support and parent education home visiting program. HFO is voluntary and it focuses on strengthening the parent-child relationship to assure healthy growth and development. Home visitors support parents in cultivating and strengthening a nurturing, positive relationship with their baby at each visit. Parents receive information on topics like child development, infant care, and keeping their baby healthy, and learn what is going on in their communities to support new families. Many families are eligible for home visits with a trained home visitor, who coaches them as they build their skills as parents and help their baby be safe, healthy, and learn.

Healthy Families Oregon is an accredited, multi-site state system with Healthy Families America (HFA) and Oregon’s largest child abuse prevention program. Healthy Families Oregon empowers parents to be their child’s best teacher from the very start!

In 2018, the program provided screening and referral services to 5,501 families of newborns (13% of all Oregon births) and evidence-based intensive home visiting to 2,0352 of Oregon’s most vulnerable families. Healthy Families Oregon has shown that it works to reduce child maltreatment and increase children’s readiness for school. More about program results can be found in the 2019 Healthy Families Oregon Status Report Tables prepared by NPC Research.

A securely attached baby leads to a curious toddler, which leads to a kindergartner ready for school and beyond. For the best for your baby, call your local Healthy Families Oregon program today.
