Maternal Health & Home Visiting Support

Parenting doesn’t come with instructions. Fortunately Oak Park and River Forest are committed to your success as a parent.

For families that require a little extra support, the Collaboration, in partnership with home visiting programs and the Village of Oak Park’s Public Health Nurse, work together to make sure families can get connected to a program through a single point of contact.

We contract with Easterseals to run their Partnering with Parents home visiting program in Oak Park and River Forest.

All home visiting programs are free, offered year-round, and use Parents as Teachers curriculum. Home visiting staff are specially trained and skilled at supporting parents in developing as caregivers.

Home visits occur in tandem with the Village of Oak Park’s Public Health Nurse, who visits newborns and their mothers over the course of the first year of their child’s life.

If you would like to learn more about home visiting, or would like to refer a family who might need this support, please contact us.
