Health Child Abuse Prevention

HF Logo

Healthy Families is a community-based, voluntary prevention program designed to prevent child abuse and neglect and promote healthy child development.

It is designed to help teach parents of newborns how to be the best they can be at their most important job - raising and nurturing their children.

Through in-home visitation by a trained Family Support Worker, parents learn to build positive parent-child relationships, how to enhance their problem solving skills, and ensure that their child receives the best possible medical care during those critical early years.

Healthy Families Brevard was the direct result of a strategic partnership between United Way of Brevard and twenty-three local agencies and organizations committed to serving Brevard's children. This collaborative effort paid off in November of 1998 with the award of a grant to bring this special child abuse prevention program to our community. United Way of Brevard is both the administrator of the grant and the direct service provider.

United Way currently supports Healthy Families offices in Titusville, Cocoa and Melbourne, providing services to expectant families/families of newborns in target zip codes areas throughout the county.
