New Beginnings Program

For a Healthy Family



Being a parent is the best and most difficult job you'll ever experience. New Beginnings is a self-directed, free program, with regular visits made by a Public Health Nurse or a Parent Aide.


We can help with:  

    • Finding infant resources (strollers, formula, etc.).
    • Juggling work, school and parenting
    • Identifying and achieving your short and long term goals
    • Coping with the stress of everyday life
    • Information on healthy growth and development for your child using the Ages and Stages Questionnaires
    • Identifying and building on your family’s strengths
    • Managing family or emotional problems
    • Working on other problems that concern you
    • Being available for confidential support and encouragement


To participate in our program or to receive an Ages and Stages Questionnaire for your child call us at 608-637-5251
