The Healthy Families Program is an intensive home visiting program for families with prenatal children who reside in the East District and in the Southside of Richmond. Home Visitors work with enrolled families until the target child is three years of age. The program is designed for parents facing challenges such as single parenthood; low income; childhood history of abuse and other adverse child experiences; and current or previous issues related to substance abuse, mental health issues, and/or domestic violence. The Healthy Families Program is also committed to establishing relationships with community partners who serve prenatal and post natal families to improve and enhance client services. There are several designated referral sites throughout the City of Richmond which include: hospitals, medical offices, local schools and family resource centers.

Services provided include but are not limited to: screenings and assessments to determine if families are at risk for child maltreatment or other adverse childhood experiences; home visiting services; parent support groups; routine screening for child development and maternal depression and community-based referrals.


To make referrals, please contact 804-646-3302.
