Home Visitation Programs

Welcome Baby Utah County

Trained home visitors see moms and babies with health or other concerns. Nurses weigh the baby, educate on development and growth, offer community resources, support breast feeding, screen mothers for postpartum depression, and with parents’ permission refer to early intervention programs. Programs are evidence and research-based using Protective Factor Family Framework and Parents as Teachers (PAT) models. All home visits are offered in English and Spanish. Each program may have specific requirements for eligibility.

  • All home visits are free to enrolled families
  • Families must live in Utah County to qualify
  • Developmental Screenings up to age 5-years parent approval referred to early intervention.
  • Postpartum Depression Screenings for mothers with education and referral.
