Youth Health Connection from South Shore Hospital’s Free Parenting Resource: Healthy Families

Healthy Families Massachusetts is a free and voluntary support program for young, first-time moms and dads across the state.  Parents can sign up for the program during pregnancy and continue up to their child’s third birthday.  Their goal is to help young parents build a bright future.  Upon contacting Healthy Families, one of their family support staff will get to know the young family personally – in their home or wherever they’d like to meet.

Healthy Families Massachusetts gives parenting support; partnering with the parents or parent to help them tackle the challenges that parenting can bring on, finding resources in their community, and helping them know what to expect during pregnancy and in parenting.
They also work with the family to help them achieve the personal goals, such as finishing school or finding the right job.
