Help for New and Expecting Parents
Phone: (912) 573-4893
The New Parent Support Home Visitation Program (NPSHVP) is the Navy’s Family Advocacy Program’s secondary prevention program for families who have been identified as “at risk” for child maltreatment and domestic abuse.
NPSHVP provides the evidence-based Nurturing Parenting Home Based Program with screening, assessment, and intensive home visitation delivery for parenting education and referrals to military members and their families who are expecting a child or who have children ages 0 up to age 4.
What We Do:
- NPSHVP identify, on a voluntary basis, expectant parents and parents of children from birth to four years of age who are at risk for engaging in child abuse.
- Referrals for all parents expecting a new baby or with a child ages 0 up to 4 years of age, and access to military and civilian community resources available for families.
- Parenting awareness, positive parent-child interactions, and promotion of healthy family functioning.
- Support mission readiness through the prevention of child maltreatment and domestic abuse in families, and decrease negative effects of intermittent single parenting due to deployment and other military operations by providing proactive outreach, positive education, and assistance.
