Family Home Visiting

NC Family Home Visiting 5

The Nicollet County Public Health Team offers a variety of family home visiting services by registered nurses, social workers, and community health workers to support parents, caregivers, and children.

Families are served regardless of income or insurance status, and services are provided at no cost to the family. The families we serve determine visit frequency, which can be as few as one or two visits to longer term visiting up to three years. Services provided promote healthy pregnancies, positive birth outcomes, and create safe and nurturing environments for children and families to thrive.

If you would like to refer yourself or someone else for a family home visit, please complete this form.


Baby cuesNC Family Home Visiting 1

Babies communicate with predictable body language, but sometimes it is difficult to decode. Below are a few videos to help translate what your baby is telling you.

Car SeatsNC Family Home Visiting 4

Pregnant women in their 7th through 9th month of pregnancy, babies after being enrolled in medical assistance, and children can receive car seats and booster seats through their Blue Plus or UCare medical assistance plan. Please visit the child passenger safety page for more information. 

Cradle of Hope

Cradle of Hope is a non-profit organization that helps pregnant women and their babies obtain financial and material assistance to help relieve stress during difficult situations. Nicollet County is a ‘crib site,’ meaning we are able to provide safe sleep education and portable cribs to families in need. If you are unable to afford a safe pace for your baby to sleep, we would love to help you; please call Rebecca at 507-934-7226.
