Healthy Families Home Visitation

“It has helped me so much having someone listen to me and give me advice. I often think during the week, ‘When is Laura coming?’, because no one else in my life has taken the time to be with me like you. She has helped me with my goals and talked with me when I feel stressed. From the bottom of my heart, I am grateful for Wellroot and the generous people that support it.”

– Maylin, HFNG Client

What is Healthy Families North Georgia?

Healthy Families North Georgia is a free parenting and family support service provided at no cost to participants. Wellroot Family Support Specialists meet with families of young children in their homes and work with them to cultivate and strengthen their relationship with their child, promote healthy childhood growth and development, and enhance family functioning and bonding.

Family Support Specialists visit the home once a week during infancy and phase into monthly visits focusing on attachment, developmental milestones, and family support.
