Home-visiting Programs


Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in New York City, all PHS’ Home-visiting offices are currently closed. Support services are being provided via telephone and video-based sessions for enrolled participants. New participants are welcome during this time. Please check individual program pages for contact information. We are continuing to monitor the situation closely so please check back in on this page for regular updates. 

We provide a variety of evidence-based home-visiting services to pregnant and parenting families. Our Nurse Home Visitors and Family Support Workers offer education, tools, and support during pregnancy and through early childhood. These services are voluntary and free. They support low-income families to access healthcare and community resources, learn about healthy parenting and bonding with their baby, continue their own education and employment, and support their child’s optimal development. Mothers are screened for depression and other behavioral risks and children are screened for achievement of developmental milestones.
