HOPES - Healthy Opportunities for Parents to Experience Success

HOPES is a voluntary community based home visitation program for families living in Humboldt County. Families are considered eligible for the HOPES program if they are expecting a child, or have a child between the ages of 0 - 3 years of age. The purpose of HOPES is to help you relieve some of the stress of parenting. Your family support worker will become a person that you can count on to reach your family goals. HOPES services will help you learn about a healthy pregnancy, caring for a new baby, keeping your child healthy, child development, early childhood guidance and discipline, family life skills, and available resources. 

Goals of the program:

  • Promote optimal child health and development
  • Improve family coping skills
  • Promote positive parenting skills and family interaction
  • Provide families with referrals to outside resources when necessary
  • Promote parent education, support, and responsibility
HOPES services are voluntary and at no cost to the family. 
Monthly socializations provide a time to network with other parents, provide parent/child activities and educational opportunities.
