Building Stronger Families,together. 

Great Childhoods Begin at Home

Healthy Families Arizona™ is part of a national program to support parents during the first few years of their child’s life to help children have a happy and healthy start. At Child Crisis Arizona, the Healthy Families program assists families in Maricopa and Pinal counties.

This free, voluntary program is designed to strengthen families during the first and most critical times in a child’s life by meeting with parents in their home on a weekly basis and offering support and resources to assist  parents as they create strong, lifelong relationships with their children. The research-based home visitation curriculum focuses on enhancing child’s health and development.
