Family Foundations is a family support program offered by Pocahontas County Homecare Aide Agency to assist pregnant women and families of newborns and children aged two at the time of admit. Family Foundations will focus on prenatal care, child development, child health, parenting skills and other aspects of family functioning. The home visitation program will help your child with being school-ready and educational and fun activities are planned weekly until your child begins kindergarten.
