General Program Description
The Army New Parent Support Program provides services that support soldier readiness and the well-being of the Army family. The New Parent Support Program - Home Visitation is a standardized Family Advocacy Program secondary prevention program for parents whose life circumstances place them at risk for engaging in child abuse and neglect. The program delivers intensive, strengths-based home visitation services developed specifically for expectant parents and parents of children from birth to 3 years of age to enhance the protective factors and reduce the risk of factors associated with child abuse and neglect. The program is voluntary.
