Healthy Families Florida is a nationally accredited home visiting program for expectant parents and parents of newborns experiencing stressful life situations. The program improves childhood outcomes and increases family self-sufficiency by empowering parents through education and community support. Parents voluntarily participate in Healthy Families so they can learn how to recognize and respond to their babies’ changing developmental needs, use positive discipline techniques, cope with the day-to-day stress of parenting in healthy ways, and set and achieve short- and long-term goals.
Carol’s work is about prevention. She is the face and voice of advocacy to empower families who want to do right by children to have the resources to be successful.
Thank you Carol for your advocacy on behalf of children and families throughout Florida.
