Through the Healthy Families America Program at CAPSC, we accompany families through the life-changing transition to parenthood, giving the support and teaching the skills needed to make sure every family has the strongest start possible. Our family support services are available for new parents to help with any questions that arise, from prenatal until your child is 3 years old.

Services are free, voluntary, and can be received when and where you need it.

Stories of Support

When Cory’s son Ashton was an infant, she noticed that his cry sounded odd, and that he kept curling up. She checked with her family support specialist, Deirdre, who told her to trust her instincts to see a doctor. Shortly after, Ashton got life-saving surgery for intussusception, a complication of the intestines. Cory says the HFA program saved her son’s life, and that Deidre continues to support her and her family.
