What is Texas Home Visiting?
Texas Home Visiting’s goal is to help good people be great parents.
We help parents by matching them with someone who can answer questions, give advice, and recommend services. This helpful person lives in your community and visits you in your home or another convenient location. We call this person a “home visitor.”
Depending on your needs, the home visitor may be a nurse, an experienced parent, or another trained professional or volunteer. He or she can talk with you about things like:
- Taking care of more than one child.
- Learning new ways to keep children happy and healthy.
- Getting children ready for school.
- Understanding how important parents are to their child’s learning and well-being.
