Getting Support in Michigan
New babies don’t come with instructions. Everyone who is pregnant or has a little one at home could use some support. Michigan Home Visiting programs are for pregnant people and families with children up to 6 years old.
Home Visiting programs provide information to support you in having a healthy pregnancy. Home visitors also connect you to community resources and material resources if needed, including things needed for a newborn like a safe space to sleep.
