HANA LIKE HOME VISITOR PROGRAM
The Hana Like Home Visitor Program “works together” with families to provide supportive coaching, role modeling and teach strategies/materials that enhance the parent/caregiver’s ability to provide a safe, healthy, nurturing environment for their children. Mothers, fathers and other caregivers on Oahu are encouraged to participate.
Home visitors work with children ages birth to three years and their parents/caregivers who reside in Kalihi - West Honolulu area of Oahu. Home visitors also work with prenatal mothers. Home visitors provide a wide range of maternal-child health related services that include; prenatal and well-baby care including immunizations; child health and safety; how and when to make the best use of your medical and dental homes; how to prevent injuries, including how to parent without the use of physical, psychological and/or emotional abuse; how to help support and increase school readiness; how to develop and implement a family budget; and coordination of referrals to community resources and supports.
Hana Like services are strength-based, family centered/family driven and culturally responsive.
