CAMBA’s Healthy Families program held a graduation ceremony on September 24, 2015, celebrating 32 families who had completed the program! Monica (pictured with her son) said, “I was lucky to have found my family support worker when I did. I was suffering from postpartum depression, and she helped me get my life back.”

Parents who are expecting a child and families with a baby younger than 3 months can join Healthy Families. Through regular home visits, parents receive information on the baby’s development throughout pregnancy and beyond, breastfeeding, how to soothe the baby, and much more. Families may choose to stay in the program, which is completely free, until the child is 5 years old. For more information, call 718-826-2223 or email [email protected]
