New Parent Support Program

You may be expecting your first baby or busy with a toddler. That probably means you have your hands full and may have questions. Thankfully, help is at hand.

The New Parent Support Program is a free service that helps military parents, including expectant parents, transition successfully into parenthood and provides a nurturing environment for their children. Services vary but may include home visits, parenting classes, playgroups, or prenatal classes.

General Program Description

The New Parent Support Program is a team made up of nurses, social workers, and home visitation specialists who offer support and guidance by helping parents:

  • Build strong, healthy bonds with their infants and toddlers that will lay the foundation for their social and emotional development
  • Manage the demands of parenting, especially when impacted by deployments and other military operations
  • Remain flexible and responsive when navigating daily life
  • Build a strong support network
  • Respond to infant and toddler behavior sensitively and be attuned to their developmental needs
  • Find services in the local community in a time of need
