Service Details

Service Description

In order to determine whether a family would benefit from home visiting, the Georgia Home Visiting program implements a service called First Steps where a professional conducts a screening with a caregiver in order to determine the resources they may need to create the best environment for their family. Referrals based on this screening may include various community resources (e.g., child care options, housing supports, health care assistance, pediatrician suggestions). When more ongoing support is needed, a referral to a home visiting program may be made.
