New Parent Support Program
The New Parent Support Program offers information, support and guidance to military families who are expecting a child or have a child 3 years old or younger. Services are provided free of charge to eligible families. Program staff provides support in the areas of pregnancy, labor and delivery, infant and toddler care and safety, growth and development, parenting and family relationships through home visits, classes, support groups and referrals to community services. New Parent Support Program staff understands the impact that military life can have on expectant and new families and assists families in coping with these special situations. Program services are tailored to each family’s unique circumstances and can help with preparing for parenthood, parenting skills, understanding growth and development, couple communication and stress management.
Program services are available to military families with an expectant parent or with children 3 years of age or younger.
