Mission Statement

First Visitor at Peak Vista Community Health Centers is a free home support program for new and/or expectant parents of children 0-3 years of age. Our purpose is to help families support their children's physical, emotional and intellectual development during the critical first three years.

Thank you for your interest in joining our team of volunteer home visitors and/or material administrators!

Description

The excellent information we have the privilege to share...

Program A is the initial contact made prenatally, within the first few weeks after delivery, and up to 12 months, to celebrate the birth and welcome the baby into the community. Provides information on health, safety, childcare, community resources, health insurance, early brain development, developmental milestones, and highlights the importance of reading to children from birth.

Program B is for parents of children 12 to 24 months of age and focuses on helping parents promote and encourage language development, which has been shown to have a significant link to school readiness and learning success later in life. Gives parents specific information, assessments, and tools to promote language development during the second year of life.

Program C is for parents of children 24 to 36 months of age and takes a holistic approach to zero in on the topics that parents and experts said mattered the most for children in this age group: positive guidance and discipline, language, motor, cognitive, and social-emotional development, health and safety, and the critical importance of parent-child attachment.

First Visitor staff provides Family Support Services, collaboration between providers and families with children under age 3 to identify family-driven goals, to facilitate and coordinate care, and to provide cohesion with other community professionals to strengthen and increase family resilience

First Visitor Volunteers provide knowledge/education of infant and toddler development, positive parenting, resources for family resilience, social connections and concrete support for families with children under the age of three.
