What is Healthy Families?
Healthy Families is a program that provides families with useful, up-to-date information on child development and parenting.
What types of services does Healthy Families provide?

- Information on baby/child development
- Developmental screenings
- Information on teaching with love
- Information on baby and child temperaments
- Home safety and child-proofing tips
- Tips for reducing stress
Families who reside in Gulf County and who are expecting a new baby or have a child under 3 months old are encouraged to contact us for more information.
