About

Parenting is definitely not easy. Every pregnancy is different, not to mention how different every child is. Have you ever thought “what do I do now?” If only babies came home with handbooks, parenting would be so much easier. Wouldn’t it be nice to just have someone to turn to and ask those questions to?

Healthy Families Rappahannock Area (HFRA) is the support you are looking for. Our Family Support Specialists are here just for you and best of all there is absolutely no cost. Yes, we are FREE support dedicated to you. We support new families living in the Counties of Spotsylvania, Stafford, Caroline, King George, and the City of Fredericksburg, Virginia.

At HFRA, our goals are to promote positive, nurturing, responsive parenting; improve child health and development; and encourage school readiness. We work closely with the Rappahannock Area Community Services Board (our fiscal agent) as well as other community partners, to support child well-being and positive parenting.
