Indianhead Community Action Agency's Home Visiting Program provides support to expectant mothers and families with children ages birth to three.
Expectant mothers and families understand the importance of the attachment theory, continuity of care, brain development and other child development information through weekly home visits.
Seventy-five percent of enrollment participants must be expectant mothers. We enroll families that meet the 100% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Families may qualify under special circumstances such as: homelessness, foster care, diagnosed disability, or other family circumstances.
Volunteers are welcomed to provide support in data entry and/or the following meetings, self-assessment, school readiness and parent committees.
This is a new program. Currently, we are in the process of enrolling families. We will be serving 10 families in each of the following counties; Clark, Rusk, Taylor and Sawyer.

On June 8, the House Ways and Means Human Resources Subcommittee introduced legislation to extend funding for the federal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program, which is currently set to expire at the end of September 2017. The bill - Increading Opportunity through Evidend=Based Home Visiting Act would reauthorize the current program for five years at current funding levels.
