Home Visiting Work Group recognized by Bernalillo County Commission

Home Visiting Work Group

At the Bernalillo County Commission’s regular meeting on April 25, 2017 The Bernalillo County Home Visitation Work Group was recognized with a Proclamation for Child Abuse Prevention Month. Commissioner Maggie Hart Stebbins praised home visiting in the proclamation as “truly making a difference in the lives of children and families.”

Carolyn Salazar, Nurse Supervisor of the Nurse Family Partnership Program, UNM Center for Development and Disability, accepted the proclamation on behalf of the 10 home visiting programs and several partners who participate in the Bernalillo County Home Visitation Work Group.

Home Visiting programs play an increasingly important role in the promotion of infant and early childhood mental health, emphasizing the parent-child relationship and understanding typical child development and unique temperaments. Home Visitors engage families in learning positive behavior support strategies and work to reduce family stress in order to help promote children’s mental health. The Bernalillo County Home Visiting Work Group supports an integrated approach for serving young families. The group demonstrates interagency collaboration among early childhood partners and regularly offers joint professional development in early childhood.
