Healthy Families

Contact DOH in Wakulla County

The Healthy Families program provides families with useful, up-to-date information on child development and parenting. Healthy Families services are delivered primarily through home visits with parents and children. During a typical home visit, parents can learn activities to help strengthen children’s brain and language development. Home visits allow Healthy Families to provide information of specific interest to individual families. Home visit topics and activities include:
  •     Information on baby/child development
  •     Developmental screenings
  •     Information on teaching with love
  •     Information on baby and child temperaments
  •     Home safety and child-proofing tips
  •     Tips for reducing stress
Families who reside in Franklin or Wakulla Counties and who are expecting a new baby or have a child under 3 months old are encouraged to contact us for more information. All Healthy Families services are FREE and VOLUNTARY. Give us a call! We can be reached at (850) 697-4121 or (850) 899-8442.
