The Wichita County Texas Home Visiting program matches parents with trained and experienced home visitors, whose sole responsibility is to provide education and support to families they serve. Your home visitor can answer questions about parenting and pregnancy. They can also help you get connected with local resources and services that help you care for yourself and your children.
In Wichita County, we offer programs that are proven to support families from pregnancy until the time the child enters kindergarten. All programs are nationally ranked and evidenced based with a goal of showing parents how to become their child’s first teacher.
The three programs currently being offered in Wichita County are: Nurse Family Partnership (NFP), Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY), and Parents as Teachers (PAT).
