About

Wouldn’t it be nice if babies came with instruction manuals? Parenting is hard. Can you imagine the additional stress of single parenting, inadequate income, domestic violence, limited education, or poor personal childhoods?

Healthy Families Rappahannock Area serves as that needed living, breathing manual for families at risk for adverse childhood experiences. Through an evidence-based home visiting program, HFRA Family Support Workers enable families to identify their strengths, to feel supported, and to access additional community resources.

These voluntary but intensive supports begin prenatally or right after birth. Families can be supported through the child’s fifth birthday.

As a non-profit, we work closely with our fiscal agent, the Rappahannock Area Community Services Board and our other community partners, to support child well-being and prevent abuse and neglect through the promotion of positive parenting.
