Prevention Initiative

The Preventative Initiative Program is collaboration between the three school districts and the health department.  Although this program is available to pregnant women and children from birth to three years of age, children between the ages of 1 and 3 years are targeted for service delivery. Unlike all other department home visiting programs, the PI program is non-categorical, meaning anyone in the target population can be eligible for services. If enrolled, families will be provided with environmental and medical education. Personal visits are completed by a public health nurse and allow for an individualized and personalized plan of care to be completed. This program offers children a chance to develop in the following areas: language, cognition, motor, and health. The goal of this program is to assure children are as healthy as possible thus leading to an increased likelihood for academic success.
