What is Strong Families AZ?

Strong Families AZ is a network of free home visiting programs that helps families raise healthy children ready to succeed in school and in life. Our programs focus on pregnant women and families with children birth to age 5.

So, What is Home Visiting?

Home visiting provides families the opportunity to take part in parent education programs within the comforts of their own home. Program involvement for families is completely free and participation is voluntary.

Parent education programs delivered by home visitors provide benefits to all types of families.  Parenting can be overwhelming, especially for young families who may be facing a variety of economic, health, social and educational concerns; and that’s where home visiting programs can have a positive impact.

Home visitors have helped families just like yours become stronger. Families who participate in home visiting experience increased opportunities for support and are connected to local resources and programs.  Young families who participate in a home visiting program report that they feel more confident, capable and hopeful for their future and the future of their children.

When families feel supported they are more likely to achieve their full potential and that’s where the Strong Families AZ network of partners play an important role.
