New Parent Support Program
New parent support program
The New Parent Support Program (NPSP) helps to build strong healthy families to cope with stress, isolation, deployment, post-deployment reunions, and the everyday demands of parenthood through a variety of programs including support groups and parenting classes. This program offers expectant parents, parents of newborns and young children the opportunity to learn new skills as parents and to improve old ones. The confidential services also offer you the opportunity to express your concerns and ask questions.
Programs and Services offered by NPSP include:
Dad’s Baby Boot Camp and Mom’s Basic Training — Classes provide expectant parents and those with an infant an understanding of the infant’s world and the basic skills necessary for loving, safe care.
Parent Classes — Classes provide “hands on” information for parents to make informed, responsible decisions about their toddlers and young children.
Referrals — Assistance with information and referrals provide help for finding the appropriate military and community services.
Play Morning — An interactive play group designed to teach parents developmentally appropriate play and to help children improve their social, cognitive, and motor skills.
Home Visits — Help with your concerns as a parent or parent-to-be in the privacy of your home by a warm, caring professional.
NPSP services are available to families regardless of whether they live on or off the military installation.
The New Parent Support Program (NPSP) is a professional team of licensed social workers and registered nurses who provide supportive and caring services to military families. All staff must complete a criminal background check.
Our trained, supervised home visitors have extensive knowledge of the issues encountered by today’s parents. These home visitors are sensitive to the unique challenges facing military families.
Marine families and sister service families, stationed at or near a Marine Corps installation, who are expecting a child or have a child under six years of age, are eligible to participate free of charge in all of the services offered by NPSP.
Families participating in Play Morning must provide documentation of your child’s immunization record signed by a physician or a medical treatment facility.
