Help Me Grow Home Visiting
The Perry County Board of DD serves as the administrative agent for the Ohio Department of Health’s home visiting program. The program provides home visits to expectant moms and new families in order to promote a healthy pregnancy, share tips on keeping children safe and developmentally on track, and to help families find the resources they may need. The Home Visitor uses an evidence based curriculum to provide instruction at each home visit. The program is affiliated with the Parents as Teachers (PAT) model of service delivery. Help Me Grow home visitors are trained to provide caring support and reliable information that makes a difference to the lives of families.
