Healthy Families Martin-Okeechobee


“I have had a wonderful experience with Healthy Families. I appreciate the time that the support workers took to spend with my daughter. My daughter would always have a smile on her face every time they would show up at my house. Those are the moments I will never forget. I enjoyed the activities done at home, and teaching her new things. She learned a lot, and developed into a smart little girl. I do thank you for this program. I know that it did impact my life in a wonderful way.”
– Norma Ordoñez

Healthy Families Martin-Okeechobee offers support services to families who may be experiencing stress in their lives that makes parenting more challenging. Services are offered through home visits with a Family Support Worker which may start before or shortly after the birth of a baby, and can continue until the child's 5th birthday.

“I really enjoy the home visits. They provide me with good information on how to care for my child. I like the activities I can do with my baby, to help him grow and develop.”
– Thankful Parent

Highlights of the program include:

  • Promotion of positive parent-child relationships and the importance of nurturing and bonding during the first 5 years of life
  • Focus on parents’ important role in healthy child development and school readiness
  • Links to medical and other important community resources for their families
