The Family Connects model is an evidence-based approach to supporting all newborns and their families. By reaching all families in a community, Family Connects improves health outcomes at the population level.
Every family needs support after bringing home a baby. The needs are different in each family – from help with feeding and safe sleep to getting information about child care and parenting groups. Family Connects links parents to the individual community resources they need.
Equitable Outcomes for Each and Every Newborn
Family Connects International® is committed to strengthening bonds within families of newborns and linking them directly to supportive community care resources. The Family Connects Model is an evidence-based model designed to support optimal maternal-child health and advance equitable outcomes, while promoting better aligned community care systems.
