Family Connects NC is a nurse home visiting program for parents of newborns that live in Beaufort, Bertie, Chowan and Hyde Counties. Based on the Connects model of home visiting which was piloted in Durham County, NC, Family Connects supports parents' health and social needs after having a baby and connects them with community resources. The services are provided free of charge by registered nurses.
Family Connects is part of the Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge Grant to strengthen early childhood systems in rural eastern NC. It is a collaboration of local communities, health departments and the NC Division of Public Health.
