Who's Eligible
All military families expecting or with a child under six years of age are eligible to participate free of charge in all services offered.

What if we are not new parents?
Even if you have been raising your family for a few years, new ages and stages bring different challenges. Often, adding a brother or sister to the family presents a real change for everyone. The New Parent Support Program offers you the opportunity to express your concerns and ask questions about babies, young children and family relationships.

Home Visits
Are confidential and can take place in the home, the New Parent Support office, or any other convenient and comfortable location. The evidence-based Parents as Teachers curriculum is utilized during home visits.


New and expectant mothers, active duty or dependent spouses have a safe and confidential space to:

  • Prevent and heal from postpartum depression and anxiety
  • Learn and practice new ways to nurture yourself
  • Gain support from others to cope with the transition to motherhood the good, the bad, and the ugly
  • Manage your feelings and thoughts to feel better
