Wouldn’t it be nice if babies came with instruction manuals? Parenting is hard. The relationships we build with parents and families serve as a model for the supporting, positive relationships we help parents cultivate and form with their children.
Healthy Families Rappahannock Area affiliated with Healthy Families America, provides the tools, guidance and support that families need to build a healthy, successful life. We provide free services in the Commonwealth of Virginia in the Counties of Spotsylvania, Stafford, Caroline, King George and the City of Fredericksburg. Once a family is enrolled, a Family Support Specialist (FSS) provides regular home visits from pregnancy until a child’s fifth birthday.
At HFRA, our goals are to promote positive, nurturing, responsive parenting; improve child health and development; and promote school readiness.
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 and positive parenting.
