Parent Plus

Home visiting is hailed as one of the most effective ways to improve health, education, and economic outcomes for new parents and their children.  Home visiting programs provide tailored support for pregnant moms and new parents to promote maternal and child health, improve school readiness, and help prevent child abuse and neglect. Home visitors partner with parents as they navigate the challenges of parenting, offering vital support through regular in-home visits and helping link families to community resources. 

All programs offered through ParentPlus are voluntary and free of charge to eligible families. We’re excited for this opportunity for parents and children in Shelby County, and thrilled to partner with ParentPlus as part of the Early Success Coalition to help spread the word about available home visiting programs in our community. Visit to find more information about ParentPlus and to discover programs that may be right for your family.
