What is a Family Support Worker?

A Family Support Worker is someone who is trained to provide families with support and encouragement during the time of a new baby.

They offer families weekly visits during flexible hours, in the convenience of their own homes, to help parents manage the stress of new parenthood, share parenting skills and support parents in achieving personal and family goals for the good of the family.

Home visits begin with helping parents prepare for a birth, or after the birth of a baby, and can continue for five years. During regularly scheduled home visits, parents receive encouragement and support and learn about healthy child growth and development.

The Family Support Worker can link you to other community services.

This program is proven to promote healthier families and prevent child abuse and neglect in at-risk families.
