First time mothers, or those who are pregnant with their first child, are invited to explore the range of home visitation services available to income-eligible women at Project Self-Sufficiency. Participants receive free parenting tips, baby items, information about childhood health, and other topics from certified nurses or professional home visitors. The programs combine home visits with educational outings for mother and child to help parents boost literacy levels, address health issues, and help prevent potential developmental delays. Women who are pregnant or parenting infants, as well as those with children up to the age of three are eligible. Mothers have the opportunity to meet regularly with other women in similar circumstances by attending monthly Mommy Parties held at Project Self-Sufficiency. Participants receive the latest information about household safety, parenting, health and wellness, and other topics, while enjoying lunch and engaging in craft projects with their children. While on site, mothers can also take advantage of the other programs and services available to families at the agency. Transportation to the monthly gatherings is available to women in need. Project Self-Sufficiency’s home visitation services are available to income-eligible residents of Sussex, Hunterdon and northern Warren Counties. To find out more about the home visitation programs offered at Project Self-Sufficiency, call 973-940-3500, or visit www.projectselfsufficiency.org.
