Building supportive families

The birth of a child brings unimagined joy, yet at the same time, the challenges involved can take many parents and caregivers by surprise. Covering the most critical developmental period in a child’s life, Growing Up New Mexico’s Home Visiting program delivers an integrated curriculum of support and resources that inform a confident, healthy, and stable family life. Open to all families in Santa Fe and Rio Arriba Counties, our Home Visiting program can begin prenatally and can continue until age three. During initial visits, trained home visitors help parents, caregivers, and families master the best ways to feed, care for, and bond with a new baby. Once healthy growth and development are established, Home Visiting expands to build a foundation for early learning, literacy, and social emotional growth. By guiding families to opportunities and tools needed to thrive, Home Visiting nurtures more effective parents and healthier, happier kids.

Here are a few of the many benefits of the Home Visiting experience:

  • 100% of Home Visiting parents receive prenatal care—the most crucial factor in reducing the risk of low birth weight and infant mortality.
  • 99% of parents and caregivers who complete our Home Visiting program develop a lasting bond with their children. Bonding supports a child’s social, emotional, and cognitive development. Healthy bonding between child and parent/caregiver also lead to increased resilience and ability to concentrate, both of which can inform long-term academic and career success.
