Healthy and Fair Start
Any Baby Can’s Healthy and Fair Start (HFS) program partners with parents to help their kids learn, grow and reach their full potential. HFS uses a nationally recognized model called Parents as Teachers (PAT), which focuses on creating stable and safe family environments, addressing developmental delays, increasing school readiness and encouraging parental involvement in their school and community.
We work alongside parents to meet their goals, whether they are the child’s goals, family goals, or the parents’ career and education goals.
In-home visits by a Certified Parent Educator once or twice each month
Parent-child activities focused on age-specific milestones that prepare kids for school (socially, emotionally and academically) and promote bonding and attachment
Time to talk about and address parenting topics or challenges
Access to resources in the community
Monthly group events that build community, encourage shared exploration, and introduce parents to local friends and resources
In addition to HFS, Any Baby Can also works with People’s Community Clinic on a program called Tandem that offers the same PAT curriculum specifically for teen parents served by the Clinic.
