Healthy Start is offered to Harney County families who are having a baby or have young children and could use some extra support. A program of weekly home visits is offered by the Home Visitor to eligible families. During home visits the Home Visitor may answer questions on caring for an infant, go over the development of the child or help the parents connect with services that may help the family reduce stressors. Home visits will decrease as the family becomes more effective in handling the stress. For an application and more information please contact Ramla Richardson at 541-573-6461.
