Permanency, Safety And Lifelong Connections From The Very First Day

Welcome Home Baby is a voluntary home visiting service for all families who deliver their first baby at select hospitals in Contra Costa County, California.  Currently the program serves approximately 1,300 families per year in a county of one million residents and 4,800 annual first-time births. 

Family Support Specialists are skilled in:

  • Helping to schedule medical appointments

  • Explaining growth and development of the baby
  • Navigating public transportation routes
  • Testing the baby for developmental progress 
  • Providing English to Spanish translations 
  • Recommending classes and support groups
  • Aiding in employment searches

A Welcome Home Baby Family Support Specialist visits families to ensure the family has the support it needs to care for and support a new family member. Since this program began, child abuse reports to child protective services for this age group has dropped 60%.
