Healthy Families

Our Hennepin Healthy Families-Headway (HHF-H) program serves young children from prenatal to age four and their first time parents who are dealing with multiple challenges.  Trained home visitors provide long-term, clinically-supervised intensive home visits that focus on strengths and relationship-building. Families can enroll prenatally or up until their child is three months of age.

Through therapeutically grounded, curriculum-enhanced methods, the home visitor assists and supports the parent(s) in their role as their child’s first and primary educator, ensures that the child is developmentally on track and promotes a healthy parent-child relationship. 

Desired outcomes of the program are:

  • Children arrive at preschool and kindergarten ready to learn.
  • Parenting promotes optimal growth and development.
  • Maternal behaviors promote healthy babies and children.

Outcomes are measured through regular screening and assessment and continuously tracked through the Metro Alliance for Healthy Families. HHF-H is part of the nine-county Metro Alliance for Healthy Families and Headway serves Richfield SECA students and south Minneapolis families.  Funding for this service is provided primarily by the Greater Twin Cities United Way.  Additional funding support for this program is provided from a 2015 grant from The Grotto Foundation, Inc.
