The Parenting Place is proud to offer the following programs and services:

  • Healthy Families Foothills

    • Healthy Families believes that early, nurturing relationships are the foundation for life-long, healthy development. Interactions between families are designed to promote positive parent-child relationships and healthy attachment, and are strengths-based, family-centered, culturally sensitive and reflective.

    • Families are enrolled prenatally or within two weeks after birth. Once enrolled, we offer services to families until the child's third birthday. Families are offered one home visit per week for the first six months after the child's birth. After those initial months, visit frequency is based on families' needs and progress over time. Home visits usually last one hour.

    • Program is also offered in Spanish.

  • Counseling and Supportive Services
