Right From the Start
Right From The Start (RFTS) is a statewide program in West Virginia that provides targeted case management for low-income pregnant and postpartum women and their families. The RFTS Project uses a program of home visitation provided by registered nurses and licensed social workers known as Designated Care Coordinators (DCCs), who work and live in the community they serve. Home visits can begin during pregnancy, and continue through the first year after the baby is born.
Parents as Teachers
Office open 8am-4pm
Parents as Teachers is the nation’s largest evidence based home visiting program. PAT utilizes a four part intervention model and accompanying curriculum to deliver free services through parent educators to all families and children prenatally through age five. PAT helps parents understand their role in encouraging their child’s development right from birth, which prepares children for school and life success. We also have a Post-partum support group occurring twice monthly.
