New Parent Support

New Parent Support Home Visitation Program (NPSHVP) is an early-intervention service to families designed to foster healthy child development, specifically for families that are expecting or have children up to 3 years of age.

The Navy NPSHVP is based on the Nurturing Parenting Program. This program is family-centered and is responsive to the unique strengths and needs of each military family. Families that are experiencing challenges with the fast paced military lifestyle can benefit from the NPSHVP Nurturing Parenting Program. Parents learn from an evidence based, tested and proven program that assist you with a variety of topics and issues, including:

  • Bonding with your new baby or toddler
  • Understanding the developmental stages that your child is going through
  • Alternative ways to discipline your children
  • The importance of Nurturing Touch
  • Learning about family roles
  • Learning about how children master new skills
  • Learning what you should expect from your little one

Parenting can be fun! Childhood is a special time of watching a young life grow, explore and find excitement in many things. In this program you will experience fun, closeness and enjoyment in growing together. Your Home Visitor will assess your family, so that sessions are tailor made to fit your interest and your child's needs. Parents and their children receive a sequence of lessons and activities in home-based sessions. The Home Visitor works with you, promoting positive parent-child relationships between you and your child, improving your parenting knowledge and skills, and fostering healthy child development. Our program partners closely with other key community services, such as community health agencies, hospitals, social workers and educators to provide a rich and comprehensive resource base to our NPSHVP families
