Milwaukee home visiting
Children's Wisconsin has several home visiting program options that offer one-on-one support and resources to expecting moms and new parents living in Milwaukee County. Participation in these programs is voluntary and free. Learn more about home visiting programs.
If you are:
- Thinking about becoming a parent
- Parenting a newborn or infant
We can offer you support. Staff will visit with you in your home, in the community or at our office — wherever feels most comfortable and convenient for you. Sign up online and our staff will help you determine which program best suits your needs. We have two bilingual Spanish-speaking home visitors and access to interpreter services to serve other language speakers.
