Healthy Families

Healthy Families-TIP (HF-TIP) New Jersey is a program designed to help expectant and new parents get their children off to a healthy start. Families participate voluntarily in the program and receive home visiting services and community referrals from trained staff. By providing services to overburdened families, HF-TIP fits into the continuum of services provided to families in many communities. The program identifies families of prenatal or newborn children who may be at risk of maltreatment through a systematic assessment process which reaches out to the families struggling with issues correlated with child abuse and neglect.
