These programs are designed to help families with young children get connected to the local resources that best suit their needs.
This program is offered free of charge to pregnant women and families with young children age birth through five years who live in Bay County and who have identified risk factors. Successful Futures screens all newborn infants and their families through collaboration with Bay Regional Medical Center. All families who have one high-risk factor or multiple-risk factors are offered an in-home assessment to determine if they qualify for the long term family home visitation program offered through Successful Futures staff. Qualifying families are enrolled in the Successful Futures program, or referred to another community service provider better able to meet the individual needs of each family. Successful Futures long term home-visitation program uses the Healthy Family America delivery model and focuses on long term relationship based in-home visitation. This includes developing a family plan and individual goals for each family to move them toward stability and self-sufficiency.
Serves: Pregnant women and families with children up to five years old.
