CHILDREN & FAMILY HEALTH INSTITUTE RESOURCES
VNACJ CHC is part of the Children and Family Health Institute which offers a number of supportive health care services to children and adults alike. These services range from early intervention services for children with special needs to HIV testing and counseling to home visits for pregnant patients. Our patient navigators can connect you to these services.
Healthy Families provides a link to community for pregnant women and assists them with obtaining necessary supplies. Trained Family Support Workers visit expectant women in their homes during pregnancy, or up to three months following the birth of the infant. They provide education on parenting through the use of a structure curriculum and assessment tools. Please inquire about this service during your appointment. Contact us for additional information.
Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) pairs a nurse with a first-time mother in Monmouth and Middlesex County to provide assistance and guidance throughout the maternity process and early childhood years. Trained NFP nursing professionals with an extensive background in maternal child health provide weekly or biweekly visits with the goal of improving pregnancy outcomes; improving child health and development, and improving the economic self-sufficiency of the mom and family. Services can include parent education, health care, child protection, education, criminal justice, mental health, welfare and public assistance, and taxes. Nurse-Family Partnership is a program provided by the VNA of Central Jersey. Contact us for additional information.
