Our Program

Healthy Families San Angelo is a home-based family support program designed to promote healthy child development and enhance family functioning in overburdened families of newborns in the San Angelo, Texas area.

Smiling People in the Healthy Families ProgramResearch indicates that costly social problems such as juvenile crime, school failure, teen pregnancy, and welfare dependency can be prevented if children can develop a set of skills during the first years of life.

In keeping with this research, Healthy Families has developed a successful program that is delivered in the home and builds on the strengths of the family.  We make initial contact with the family in the hospital just after delivery and then continue a program of intensive intervention for up to three years.

The Healthy Families San Angelo Model sets the stage for children to grow up to be problem-solvers who make appropriate life choices.  Equally as important, it creates an environment for parents to become effective guides and role models for their children.
