Antelope Valley Prevention Services
Black Infant Health
Within a culturally affirming environment and honoring the unique history of African-American women, the Black Infant Health Program aims to help women have healthy babies. Participants learn proven strategies to reduce stress and develop life skills. This is accomplished through a group-based approach with complementary case management. Weekly group sessions help women build social support, access their strengths, make positive choices and set health-promoting goals.
Healthy Families America
Families are referred to the Healthy Families America Home Visitation program through a community referral and/or outreach. Eligible participants must be pregnant or within three months of having given birth, screen positive for risk factors and have a positive Parent Survey assessment. The program offers weekly home visits that include a variety of support based on a family’s needs: child development, focused support on enhancing bonding and attachment by reading baby cues, depression screenings, developmental screenings, family / parent goal planning, referrals to community resources.
Prevention & Aftercare Services
This program offers both linkages/referrals and case management. Families from the community that are eligible to receive case management are those who are in need of more intense services in parenting, behavior, basic needs support or special needs service navigation. The delivery of Prevention and Aftercare Services is designed to strengthen family resilience and nurture the development of healthy behaviors.
