We enroll pregnant women and children birth to age three who meet low income guidelines in Kootenai, Bonner, and Shoshone counties through a home-based program that offers weekly Home Visits and opportunities to get together with other parents and children through Playgroups.
Child Development Support
We believe that parents are their child’s first and best teacher, so we create opportunities for mothers and fathers to help their children develop in ways that support their success in school and in life.
To help children succeed, we provide different types of screenings and assessments to assure those children that may need a little extra support receive it early. It’s also an opportunity for parents to ask questions about their child’s development and learn more about supporting their child in developing language, social, cognitive, and emotional skills.

Family Development Support
We support parents by setting personal and family goals and by building relationships that support family well-being as well as strong connections between parents and their children.
Prenatal and Postpartum Support
We believe that we can help your baby have the best start in life by supporting you, as an expectant mom and family, in accessing quality medical services during and after your pregnancy.
Through regular home visits, we will help you adjust to your pregnancy, know what to expect, and get ready for your baby’s arrival. Together, we will explore different topics such as labor and delivery, sleeping, routines, feeding and nutrition, and postpartum recovery as well as other topics important to you.

In addition to offering Home Visits and Playgroups, we also know that parents and children enjoy getting together in other ways to have fun, learn, and grow.
So, we offer parenting training and center events throughout the year designed to help parents (and legal guardians) connect with their children and learn valuable skills that empower them to be the best they can be.
Please see Classes and Trainings for a list of upcoming training you may be interested in participating in.
We also offer opportunities for children and families to come together to learn through play at various Center events. Please check back often as we update it throughout the year.
