About

HFA Program GoalsOur primary objective is to help parents adjust and grow with the changes and needs in their life that come along with the birth of their first child. Having a new baby makes families feel both happy and overwhelmed. We want to make them feel comfortable and give them the confidence to do a good job as a new mother or father. We will spend time with the family, talking and sharing ideas to help them develop the skills they need to become the best parents they can be. To that end, our program goals are to:    * To systematically reach out to parents to offer resources and support    * To promote positive parenting    * To cultivate the growth of nurturing, responsive, parent-child relationships    * To improve healthy childhood growth and development    * To encourage school readiness    * To build the foundations for strong family functioning    * To prevent child abuse and neglectHealthy Families Alexandria, a program of Northern Virginia Family Service, provides voluntary home-visiting services to vulnerable first-time parents residing in City of Alexandria. Established in 1993, the program is affiliated with Healthy Families America, an initiative of Prevent Child Abuse America, and is an active member of the 36-site Healthy Families Virginia network.
