Health Connect in The Early Years

The Health Connect in the Early Years (HCITEY) is a voluntary Home Visitation Program at ICFH sponsored by The Children's Trust, which offers services to at-risk pregnant women and mothers of young children in the North Region of Miami-Dade County. Family Coaches visit families at least monthly and provide them with information and education on:   pre-natal and post-natal care, parenting education, home safety, child developmental screenings, parent support groups, screenings for maternal depression and referrals to other services, as needed. This program focuses on health education, promotion, and support to improve maternal and child health and development.
