The New Parent Support Home Visitation Program (NPSHVP) is a free support service program designed to meet the needs of expectant active-duty military personnel, their spouses and those families with children under the age of 4. The program was created to provide prenatal and parenting skills education to active-duty service members and their families.
NPSHVP’s primary goal is to enhance their quality of life by empowering them to meet the challenges of parenthood, while maintaining a military lifestyle. The program offers a variety of services, including prenatal health and nutrition consultation, breastfeeding education, early child development education, parenting skills and home visitation services.
NPSHVP professionals know that raising a family is very rewarding and sometimes can be challenging. The Home Visitors are committed to helping active-duty parents and their children maintain a strong and healthy family.
